CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Two people killed at the South by Southwest festival, a lawsuit against Amazon regarding prices and shipping, and a chance to crush things with Arnold Schwarzenegger have people talking on Thursday.

A tragic accident took place in Austin, Texas at SXSW overnight. Police say a suspected drunk driver killed two people and injured 23 others while trying to escape from police.

The driver plowed through temporary barricades into a group of people leaving a concert. He was then zapped with a stun gun and taken into custody as he tried to run off.

In consumer news, two lawsuits filed against Amazon, alleging that the online store encouraged third party vendors to hike the prices on "free shipping" items.

One of the suits claims that those who used the $79 annual "prime" service didn't actually receive the free two-day shipping that amazon advertised.

Finally, it's not just a viral video, but an actual chance to hang out with Arnold Schwarzenegger. This one has more than 1 million views on YouTube so far.

You and a friend could win a chance to ride in Schwarzenegger's M-47 Patton tank - yes, Arnold has a tank - and crush things.

It's $10 a pop to enter. The proceeds support After-School All-Stars, an organization that provides after school programs for kids. Schwarzenegger is matching every donation, dollar-for-dollar.

The drawing takes place on Friday. So if you're interested, visit Omaze's contest page.
