Commentary on Kenneth Loller Single-Vehicle Accident in Collin County

It's always concerning anytime authorities bring up alcohol, but too often I see people use that as an excuse to just blame the victim. That isn't going to help anyone, least of all a grieving family. Besides, those people may not realize that there is often an outside party that is also responsible for these deadly wrecks, and it's best to focus efforts on making sure they're held accountable.

Texas has what's called dram shop law. It basically 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, restaurant, liquor store, or even a gas station, these businesses understand that there can be consequences when they handle their product recklessly. When people get hurt as a result, why wouldn't every possible step be taken to ensure they're held accountable? Dram shop is a valuable tool available to victims and families to make sure that happens. Maybe evidence will show there were other factors involved here, but it's possible more thorough investigations will show that authorities missed something important.
