If police investigators confirm that alcohol did indeed cause this crash, it's important they also look into where the alcohol came from. That may not seem important, as long as the drunk driver faces consequences. What few people know, however, is that the drunk driver is not always the only party responsible.

This is due to Texas Dram Shop Law. Basically, the law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. This could be anything from a bar to a restaurant to a gas station. Holding these businesses accountable is important not only for getting victims the help they need but also for holding negligent businesses accountable for their actions. While it's unclear if that happened here, it's an important possibility to look into for the victims and families affected by crashes like this one.
