Corpus Christi, TX — November 12, 2017, Tamara Kindred, Aujuni Anderson, and Joshua DelBosque were killed after a possible drunk driving accident.

According to preliminary details released by the Corpus Christi Police Department, the fatal collision happened just before 11:30 p.m. at the intersection of South Padre Island Drive (SPID) and Kostoryz Road.

Police stated that 29-year-old DelBosque was driving a vehicle westbound along SPID at the time. He allegedly ran a red light at the crossing, crashing into a vehicle occupied by 59-year-old Kindred and 16-year-old Anderson.

As a result of the collision, all three victims sustained and succumbed to fatal injuries. No other people were reportedly involved.

At this time, police say alcohol may have been a factor. This has yet to be confirmed as investigations continue.

Commentary

Police have yet to confirm that alcohol was involved here, and the last thing I want to do is say that it was without any concrete evidence to support such a claim. What I will say is that our firm has litigated many drunk driving accidents over the years, and any accident happening at this time of night has potential to involve alcohol.

One of the reasons for this is because many people leave bars around this time and lose control while they’re intoxicated. If further investigations do determine that alcohol was a factor here, then further investigations need to be made into where the driver got their alcohol.

This is an important detail because in Texas dram shop law states that a licensed alcohol vendor which over-serves alcohol to an obviously intoxicated customer can be held liable for damages resulting from that person’s intoxication. A licensed alcohol vendor is expected to judge when their customers have had too much to drink and cut them off appropriately. If they fail to do this, they are putting lives at risk and contributing to the damage of any serious accident resulting from that person’s intoxication.

It’s important that when so many lives are affected by a serious accident like this that those responsible are held accountable for their actions. When a negligent business recklessly and illegally over-serves their customers, they deserve to be brought to justice just as a drunk driver would for their actions. The evidence that surrounding these kinds of accidents is often time-sensitive, so the sooner an investigator can look into these details, the sooner those affected by the incident can find a resolution.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

I appreciate how you've commentated on this tragedy--informative, with questions, but not hurtful. I live within 30 mins of this crash site, and I am appalled at the entire situation :(. I can't even begin to understand what could have happened to make this come to fruition, but I will be keeping up with it so I can learn what investigations bring to light about how something awful like this could happen. Rest in peace, Thomas, Carolyn and Carolyn...

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
