AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Fleeing police, a driver gunned a grey Honda Civic through a street barricade and into a crowd of South By Southwest festival attendees early Thursday, killing two people, injuring 23 others and casting a pall over one of the nation's hippest celebrations of music, movies and technology.
The Philadelphia Eagles and Oakland Raiders made the biggest moves Thursday as National Football League teams continued revamping their rosters for the 2014 season. Two days after free agency began for gridiron clubs, the Eagles obtained running back Darren Sproles from the New Orleans Saints in exchange for a 2014 fifth-round draft pick. The Raiders, meanwhile, bolstered their defensive unit by signing two free agents, nine-year veteran defensive end Justin Tuck and former Pittsburgh linebacker LaMarr Woodley.
