It's not really clear why police think alcohol contributed to the crash. They may have only brought it up to be thorough. However, if it did contribute to the crash, it's important investigators find out where the alcohol came from. 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 has two primary benefits. For one, it gets victims some much needed help for their injuries. Secondly, it holds negligent alcohol providers accountable for their recklessness, helping to make the community safer. So while it's not clear if that happened here, it's important to rule out or otherwise confirm to make sure any negligent parties who contributed to the crash facing the appropriate consequences.
