3 Injured in San Antonio, TX Alleged Drunk Driving Accident on Huebner
San Antonio, TX -- November 29, 2019, three people were injured after an accident involving an allegedly drunk teenage driver on Huebner.
In their reports, officials said that the crash happened at around 9:30 p.m. off Huebner Road and Bitters Road.
Police officials said that a teenager was allegedly drunk and lost control of their car. As a result, it crashed off the side of the road.
Rescue teams extricated the driver and his two passengers. All were said to have non-life-threatening injuries. The driver now faces DWI charges.
At this time, additional details surrounding the crash remain unclear.
If these allegations are true, it's important to find out where this alcohol came from. Not only do police need to know who served an underage drinker, but that party could also be liable for the injuries resulting from the crash.
According to Texas Dram Shop Law, an alcohol provider that over-serves alcohol to an obviously intoxicated customer can be liable for damages resulting from that person's intoxication. If that person is under 18 years old, then it doesn't matter whether that person was licensed to sell alcohol or not. In those cases, even a parent, older friend, or any person that simply provides alcohol to the minor bears responsibility for the crash.
In either case, it's very likely that both drunk driving and someone else's negligence played a role in these injuries. It's important that police bring to light all the links in this chain and find out what went wrong.
