Commentary on Queen Mwangi Car Accident in Mesquite

Crashes like this can be rather complex. On one hand, authorities say someone failed to yield. On the other, the other driver involved had allegedly been drinking. Considering how serious drunk driving is, can that person be off the hook when someone else does something wrong? The answer can be a bit complicated, but it mostly comes down to whose actions were more negligent.

If investigations show that an intoxicated driver could have easily avoided a crash, they could be responsible for the crash even if the other driver failed to yield. Conversely, it's possible that someone failing to yield could be more at fault than a drunk driver if the evidence shows that even a sober driver would have hit that person.

I can't say what happened here without more thorough investigations, but it's incredibly important to make these distinctions. Not only do the victims involved have an interest in moving forward, but there can even be unique legal avenues available to them to get them the help they need depending on the cause of the crash. For example, alcohol related crashes can lead to negligent alcohol providers such as bars being responsible if they over-served the drunk driver.

Could it be something like that happened here? It will take far more thorough investigations than these to say for sure how those involved can get the help they need.
