Commentary on Michelle McLemore Pedestrian Accident in Houston
With the recent reports showing there are criminal allegations relating to this tragedy, it's important to ensure those affected by the accident are actually getting the full story. Especially with accusations of failure to stop and render aid, there could be more to consider. For example, drunk driving is a common reason people flee the scene. That could then lead to a local bar being liable if they illegally over-served the driver. Is that something authorities looked into here? If not, then that may be a clear sign that these details would be better off in the hands of more experienced independent investigators.
