Watch: SXSW crash victim gets private performance by favorite band in her hospital room
In the seconds after a car--driven by a suspected drunk driver--plowed into a crowd outside the Mohawk in Austin, Texas, Grace Neill, 18, looked for her friend Mason.
The teens were with a group of friends waiting for the father of Mason Andres, also 18, to pick them up.
"We couldn't move before it mowed us down," Neill told the Austin American-Statesman. "Then we look around, and not everyone is with us, and we realized that Mason is gone."
Her friends found her lying in the street, covered in blood. Andres was rushed to the hospital with a broken leg, fractured neck and a broken nose.
As her prognosis improved--she'll be fine, says her father--she fretted that she'd miss a favorite band, Jared & The Mill, whom she'd seen and befriended at the previous year's SXSW, when they came through town to perform a pair of shows.
The band got word of her situation and lined up a private show for Andres, friends and family members in her hospital room.
