Commentary on Alexandra Gutierrez Single-Vehicle Accident in Bryan
Right now, there isn't much information about what happened here, but authorities now seem to believe that alcohol was a factor. If that is true, there could be complex factors that authorities don't usually handle on their own. Anytime alcohol contributes to someone's injuries, investigators need to find out where the alcohol came from. Texas Dram Shop Law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Is there a local establishment putting the community at risk? If nothing else, someone losing their life warrants every step to get answers for their loved ones.
