Commentary on Edgar Vaca Car Accident in Houston

This late in the evening, it's not unusual to see authorities look into alcohol. It's all too common here in Texas--especially Houston. For that reasons, it's important those investigations also include if someone was coming from a local alcohol provider.

Texas dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Especially if some local business contributed to a man losing his life, shouldn't that be brought to light?

Beyond that, however, there are still less common factors to consider. I wouldn't overlook anything like mechanical issues, medical conditions, road hazards, or tire defects just because they aren't very likely. One of the most important things following a deadly wreck like this is simply ensuring the victims and families involved are getting the full story. It remains to be seen if anyone is taking those steps here.
