Kendra Campo Injured in Single-Vehicle Accident on Synergy Park Blvd in Richardson, TX

Richardson, TX -- April 3, 2022, 26-year-old Kendra Campo was injured in a single-vehicle accident on Synergy Park Boulevard in Dallas County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 4:00 a.m. on Synergy Park at Waterview Parkway. Preliminary investigation and a statement from Campo suggest she was driving a Nissan Rogue west on the roadway when she began to make a southward turn at Waterview. She told police she may have fallen asleep at the "T" intersection and ran off its west side instead of turning. The Nissan crashed once off the road to the west. Investigators reported a belief that she failed to control her speed or direction due to being under the influence of alcohol at the time.

Campo suffered serious injuries in the crash.

No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Kendra Campo Accident on Synergy Park Blvd in Richardson

The driver in this crash told investigators she fell asleep at the wheel, which is easy enough to believe considering the wreck happened around 4 a.m. However, police felt differently after investigating and noted she may have been intoxicated at the time. This wouldn't be the first time that "early Sunday morning" is the same thing as "very late Saturday night," and I have no specific reason to doubt what investigators allegedly learned.

If their suspicions are confirmed by blood tests or hospital treatment records one of those sources then people may assume there's little else to do besides charge the driver accordingly. However, it would also be important to find out where her alcohol came from that night. Why? Because a local bar or nightclub might have over-served the driver, and if so that business may be responsible for her injuries under Texas dram shop law. Under dram shop law a licensed alcohol provider is prohibited from selling or serving alcohol to an obviously intoxicated customer. If they do so and that customer goes on to cause or suffer injuries due to their intoxication, the business may be considered legally responsible for the damage done.

With that said, though, intoxication is only a theory without clear evidence backing it up. Police may believe it's the primary reason for the crash but they're not excused from conducting a thorough investigation just because they have a strong hunch. They should also look into other possibilities like vehicle malfunctions, bad roads, and even to the extent they're able to verify it the driver's claim of simply falling asleep. The most important thing is to learn the whole and true story before anyone starts deciding on consequences. If a local business had a hand in the damage done, though, it should share in those consequences and make what amends it can to the victim.
