Commentary on Louisiana Man Car Accident on FM 1725 in San Jacinto County
Anytime alcohol comes up in reports, it's important to take the claims seriously. That's not to say we should sit around blaming the victim. On the contrary, it could actually mean someone out there is responsible for contributing to the deadly crash.
Texas has what's called dram shop law. It says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. So, was this person coming from a local bar or restaurant? Is there a business in the community putting people in danger? Did authorities take steps to investigate any of this? If nothing else, there likely needs to be more thorough investigations to get the full picture here.
