Five Injured in Car Accident on Red Bird Lane in Dallas, TX

Dallas, TX -- April 8, 2022, five people sustained injuries after an accident where two vehicles collided along Red Bird Lane.

Investigators reported that the crash took place at around 10:14 p.m. at the intersection of Red Bird Lane and Hampton Road.

According to officials, a 20-year-old man was in a GMC Yukon traveling eastbound on Red Bird Lane. The Yukon reportedly failed to control speed and crashed into the back of an Infiniti.

Due to the collision, the GMC driver had non-incapacitating injuries. The driver and a baby in the Infiniti also reportedly had non-incapacitating injuries while another woman in the vehicle had incapacitating injuries. A fourth occupant was in unspecified condition.

Right now, the exact cause of the crash remains unclear. Alcohol may be a factor, but this has not yet been confirmed.

Commentary on Car Accident on Spooner Street in Dallas

Any mention of alcohol is certain to raise some alarms, and unfortunately alcohol is an all too common factor here in Texas. That said, despite how common it is, not everyone understands why it can make investigations so complex. It often requires thorough investigations into where the alcohol came from.

This is due to dram shop law, which 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, liquor store, restaurant, or even a gas station, if there's a business out there putting the community at risk, shouldn't they face the appropriate consequences?

Right now, I can't say if anything like that happened here or even if alcohol contributed to the crash at all. However, it's one of many reasons I'm always adamant about experienced independent investigators who can help to ensure authorities didn't overlook anything important.
