Commentary on Car Accident on Cypresswood Drive in Harris County

It's important to be thorough anytime alcohol contributes to a crash, as police say it did here. The blood tests may show it was not a significant factor, but if the results show otherwise, most folks may think everything is all open-and-shut. In reality, there are important questions to answer. One in particular is whether or not a local establishment over-served the driver.

Folks in Harris County may recall headlines in recent years about authorities looking into gas stations, bars, and restaurants after serious drunk driving crashes. That's because business can face consequences when they over-serve obviously intoxicated customers. In addition to fines, charges, and other administrative penalties, negligent establishments can also be liable for the accident due to Dram Shop Law.

That's why folks can't just take these reports for granted. They generally only show a small piece of the much larger picture. Are the authorities here taking the proper steps to look into these possible factors so the victims have a chance to get the help they need?
