It's certainly concerning anytime authorities bring up alcohol, though investigations could show that this crash had nothing to do with alcohol. That said, even if it did, there may be more complex issues to consider beyond simply ensuring the drivers is held appropriately accountable. For example, did a local business over-serve the driver? 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. Not only could that get someone some much needed help for their injuries, but it could also help make a community safer for everyone. Is that something that authorities looked into here, or would it require more thorough independent investigations to find out what all happened here?
