Commentary on Sherwood Wagner Pedestrian Accident in Newton County

In more recent reports, authorities claim that the victim had a .222 BAC following the accident. I don't bring this up to insult anyone. Instead, if those reports are true, I can't help wondering if some local establishment contributed to this tragic death who has yet to be held accountable.

Sherwood Wagner Pedestrian Accident Newton County, TX

I had a case not that long ago where a man became disoriented while walking home after a night out drinking. While simply doing the right thing by not driving, he incidentally wandered into the road where a vehicle hit and killed him.

Our investigations showed that the establishment he had been drinking at illegally over-served him, putting him in a state of dangerous intoxication. In Texas, victims and families can hold establishments like that accountable under dram shop law for their role in the resulting accident.

Unfortunately, this is not the sort of thing authorities tend to look into on their own. As such, getting answers about what happened here may require more thorough investigations. If nothing else, there's a family out there that deserves some answers.
