Commentary on Pedestrian Accident on Keller Springs in Carrollton

It may not seem that important to clarify that a pedestrian was intoxicated beyond simply being thorough. But if it's true that alcohol led to this person walking in front of a car, that can raise some serious issues that need to be addressed. Let me give an example of why that is.

Not long ago, a family came to me about a loved one who was hit and killed by a car after he wandered onto the freeway. Investigations revealed that the man was drinking at a bowling alley, and that establishment illegally over-served him while he was already obviously intoxicated. Since they did that, and it led to a fatal accident, that business was liable for their role in the accident under Texas dram shop law.

Perhaps nothing like that happened here, but if there's a legal avenue to get someone the help they need, it at least deserves some consideration. That's especially true if there's a local business out there putting the community in danger.
