Andrew Jimenez Injured in Motorcycle Accident in Brazoria County, TX

Police may have only brought up alcohol because they're being thorough, but it's an important factor for those who need help after a serious crash, even when there's just one person involved. This is due to a unique area of Texas law called Dram Shop Law. It says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. If some local business like a restaurant, gas station, or liquor store over-serves someone and they get hurt as a result, the business can he held accountable. So while it's not clear if that all would apply to this specific wreck, getting people the help they need is always an important reason to be thorough.
