It's obviously serious anytime authorities bring up alcohol, though until there is clear evidence to confirm that's what happened here, it's little more than speculation. A prudent investigations is also going to look into other factors, even if certain possibilities seem unlikely (mechanical issues, for example). But if alcohol was a factor, it's crucial to figure out exactly what all led to the crash. If someone is on their way home from a bar, and evidence shows the bar illegally over-served them, that bar could be liable for their role in the crash under dram shop law. That isn't the sort of thing authorities tend to look into on their own, which is why it's important to make sure the investigators handling things know what they're doing and have the tools to get the victim's loved ones the answers they deserve.
