It's important to take early reports like this with a grain of salt since they don't always tell the whole story. Maybe alcohol was a factor here, but that doesn't mean other possible factors should go overlooked. Now, if it was a factor, it's important to find out where the alcohol came from. If a local business illegally over-served the driver, they could be responsible under dram shop law for their role in the crash. This isn't the sort of thing the authorities typically look into on their own, so there may need to be more thorough investigations to get some answers here.
