Commentary on Wrong-Way Accident on San Pedro in San Antonio

It's not surprising to see the authorities look into alcohol here. Obviously, we shouldn't jump to conclusions without knowing all the facts. For all we know, the driver fell asleep at the wheel or had some medical emergency that initial investigations missed. However, when someone is driving on the wrong side of the road, investigations usually show two things: they were intoxicated, and they were extremely intoxicated. The reason it's important to consider those possibilities is because this sort of thing often happens when someone is on the way home from a bar, and that bar could be liable for contributing to this serious crash.

In Texas, if a bar, restaurant, or some other similar establishment over-serves an obviously intoxicated person, then they can be liable for their role in the accident. This is called dram shop law. Not only can it mean significant help for the victims and families, it can also mean cleaning up the act of a local business that could otherwise continue to put its community at risk. Are steps being taken here to consider these possibilities.
