Commentary on Wesley Frye Single-Vehicle Accident in Callahan County
It raises red flags anytime authorities bring up alcohol, but folks should take early reports like this with a grain of salt. Even if alcohol was a factor here, it could be that some local business illegally over-served the victim and can be liable under dram shop law. Is that something authorities have looked into? Beyond that, have they looked into other possible factors? Were there mechanical issues? A tire blowout? Road hazards? Other reckless drivers? Too often, folks come to me with reports that completely overlook important details simply because authorities were too busy trying to blame the driver. That's why more thorough independent investigations are often necessary, and the same could prove true here.
