Yejide Soile, 5 Injured in Car Accident in Harris County, TX

Harris County, TX -- November 12, 2021, Yejide Soile and five others were hurt following an accident where multiple vehicles collided.

Authorities reported that the crash took place at around 6:05 p.m. along Katy Hockley Cut Off Road in the area of Salt Grass Trail.

According to investigators, 47-year-old Yejide Soile was in a Toyota Highlander traveling northbound along Katy Hockley Cut Off. At Salt Grass Trail, reports say that a southbound Bently attempted to pass a Toyota Camry that was waiting to make a left turn. Doing so, the Bently hit the Camry, then crashed into Soile's vehicle.

Soile, two passengers in the Highlander, and the driver of the Bently had reportedly non-incapacitating injuries. A 7-year-old child in Soile's vehicle reportedly sustained incapacitating injuries.

Right now, authorities are looking into the possibility that the Bently was intoxicated at the time. This and other details are unavailable.

Commentary on Yejide Soile Single-Vehicle Accident in Harris County

Authorities seem to have reason to believe that the driver allegedly responsible for this crash was either on drugs or under the influence of alcohol, perhaps even both. This is important to determine, but that's not just to make sure there are criminal charges. That all is between the driver and the authorities and isn't my business. Rather, when it comes to getting folks the help they need, a driver being under the influence of alcohol can raise some unique possibilities.

Put simply, when alcohol contributes to a crash, it's important to find out where that alcohol came from. This is due to dram shop law, which says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication.

Considering the problems with drunk driving in Harris County, folks should be more than concerned about the possibility there are businesses out there benefiting off of breaking the law and putting lives at risk. If evidence shows they contributed to a crash, allowing victims and families to hold that business accountable is an effective way to get them to clean up their act, especially since they don't always get attention from the authorities.

Like I said, there's nothing specific in these reports to say any of that applies here. That all would require far more thorough investigations. The key is to make sure the investigators looking into these possibilities actually have the experience to make sure nothing important slips through the cracks.
