Anytime a crash like this happens, police are likely to investigate alcohol just as standard procedure. Them bringing it up as a likely factor only makes it more crucial. While it's possible that evidence will show alcohol was not the cause of this crash, there's a high likelihood that it was, and that will mean finding out where the driver got their alcohol.

The reason this matters is because a lot of accidents are the result of drivers being over-served by local bars. If a bar illegally over-serves someone who is obviously intoxicated, and that causes a crash, the bar can be liable under dram shop law for their role in the accident.

The law is nuanced enough to recognize that someone needs to face consequences while also ensuring they have the right to get the help they need. That's why dram shop is not a tool to excuse drunk drivers but rather a tool to get people help and to make sure a negligent business cleans up its act. Were steps taken here to look into those possibilities?
