Montavious Miller Injured in Single-Vehicle Accident off I-35 in New Braunfels, TX

New Braunfels, TX -- March 27, 2022, 28-year-old Montavious Miller was injured in a single-vehicle accident off Interstate 35 in Comal County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 4:25 a.m. on the I-35 frontage road near Business 35.

It overturned and slid along an entrance ramp to I-35 before coming to rest on its roof and catching fire.

Miller suffered serious injuries in the crash. Investigators believe he was under the influence of alcohol at the time and collected blood samples for testing.

Commentary on Montavious Miller Accident on I-35 in New Braunfels

Investigators noted that alcohol consumption may have played a part here. If blood tests confirm that theory this crash may have further concerns that authorities rarely look into themselves. What do I mean? Well, there's often someone else involved in alcohol-related wrecks that escapes responsibility for the part it played: an alcohol provider.

Texas dram shop law essentially says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person may be liable for damages that person causes or suffers while under the influence. While the driver almost always has to answer for their actions after a DWI wreck, the negligent alcohol providers that sometimes contribute to those accidents often get to ride off into the sunset even though they endangered their customers and the public. Dram shop claims make sure they're held properly accountable for disregarding their legal obligation to protect their community--ironically, mostly from themselves.

Not every DWI crash involves a dram shop violation, and maybe nothing like that happened here. However, any nighttime crash where police suspect alcohol's involvement should receive proper investigation into all its elements, including possible "accomplices" in the form of alcohol vendors like bars and stores. Why wouldn't there be steps to make sure they too faced the appropriate consequences, especially if that can possibly get the victim some much-needed help for his injuries?
