Commentary on Single-Vehicle Accident on UTSA Boulevard in San Antonio
It's not unusual for authorities to look into alcohol simply due to the time of the crash. If it was a factor, that could involve some complex issues worth investigating more thoroughly. Not only could that lead to a local establishment serving someone who's underage, it could even show that business was also partly responsible for the crash. Dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Could it be something like that happened here? Besides that, are authorities looking into other possibilities? Even something unlikely such as mechanical defects is worth attention if it means getting someone the help they deserve.
