Milano Man Injured in Car Vs. House Accident on US 79 in Milam County, TX

Milam County, TX -- March 19, 2022, a Milano man was injured due to an accident where a car crashed through a house along US 79.

Investigations reported that the crash took place just after noon along US 79 near the intersection of County Road 338.

According to officials, a Dodge Ram 1500 was traveling eastbound along the highway when it somehow lost control. The vehicle careened off-road, overturned, then crashed through the side of the house.

A 27-year-old man in the home reportedly sustained incapacitating injuries. The driver was allegedly arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, and reports show that the driver tested at a .179 BAC. Additional details about the crash are unavailable.

If the allegations here prove to be true, there could be a lot more to this situation than folks may think. People tend to assume that the drunk driver just faces charges, and that's that. Sometimes that's how things go, but it can also be crucial to track down where that alcohol came from. This is due to dram shop law, which says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication.

Whether that's a bar, liquor store, restaurant, or even a gas station, businesses that can't follow the rules and put their business above the law and the safety of others need to be held accountable. Having them take responsibility for the injuries their actions contributed to, in my thirty years of experience, has shown to be an effective tool to that end. It remains to be seen, though, if steps were ever taken to find out if that happened here.
