Commentary on Pedestrian Car Accident on Loop 1604 in San Antonio
At 2:30 a.m., it's not a surprise to see that authorities looked into alcohol as a possibility. Though with them saying the driver wasn't drunk, it may seem like that's where things end. That's not always true.
I actually handled a situation not long ago where a pedestrian's intoxication actually led to their fatal injuries. Through our investigations, we found that a local bowling alley had illegally over-served them. What seemed like some simple, unavoidable incident turned out to be a dram shop case against a negligent alcohol provider whose actions led to someone losing their life.
Is it possible that happened here? Sure, though it's also important to consider other possibilities, even if they may seem unlikely. My point is simply that these reports are far from telling the whole story, and it's important the situation is handled by professionals who understand that so the victims involved have every possible opportunity to get the help they need.
