Folks tend to look at crashes like this and just assume that authorities file their charges and everyone moves on. That does happen, but there are often additional factors that need to be considered. Alcohol is particularly unique in Texas due to Dram Shop Law.

Essentially, if a driver crashes on their way home from a bar or a similar establishment, that establishment could bear responsibility. If they over-served the driver while they were obviously intoxicated, they illegally served that person, and the law allows the victims and families affected to hold the alcohol provider accountable. Unfortunately, the authorities rarely look into this on their own, so folks who could use some serious assistance never get the chance. Have those possible factors been considered here? If not, there may need to be more thorough independent investigations.
