Any claim of alcohol is concerning, but folks should keep in mind that's little more than speculation without clear evidence. There may very well have been an animal in the road just as authorities say. That said, if alcohol was a factor, that could be significant for two main reasons. Not only could it mean the possibility of a business serving someone who was underage, it could even mean a business being liable for the crash under dram shop law if they illegally over-served the driver, as well. I find too often that authorities focus on finding someone to charge and ignore the evidence victims and families need to get the help the law entitles them to pursue. It remains to be seen if steps were taken here to investigate things thoroughly.
