Caroline Moreno Astran Hit-and-run Accident Austin, TX

It wouldn't surprise me if alcohol was a factor here. That's quite common when it comes to drivers that leave the scene of an accident. What makes that unique is that the allegedly intoxicated drivers may have been over-served by a local establishment, which could mean that business also may have played a role in the injuries. According to Texas dram shop law, an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Could it be there is more to this than just one single driver putting people at risk? If nothing else, considering these avenues to get people the help they need is important after any crash, and I see no reason why this would be the exception.
