FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - De’Andre Tatum, 18, was laid to rest at Greater Commission Baptist Church Saturday. The teen was one of four people to die as a result of the deadly South by Southwest incident that happened on March 13.

A visitation was held on Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Tatum is survived by his parents, Derrick and Tamara O’Neal; brother, Jai’ryn McClellan; sister, De’Ericka Tatum-O’neal; paternal grandmother, Rosie O’Neal; maternal grandparents, Renolda Roseborough, James Tatum; and a host of other relatives and friends.

The teen, a 2013 graduate of Trimble Tech High School, died on March 27 after nearly two weeks in a coma.

Tatum’s girlfriend Curtisha Davis was also hurt. She continues to recover at her Fort Worth home.

Tatum and Davis were part of the crowd of concert goers standing outside, when suspect Rashad Owens, 21, of Killeen plowed into them with a car.

Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo said Owens intentionally steered toward pedestrians in hopes of escaping an officer who was trying to pull him over.
