Commentary on Head-on Accident on FM 4 in Granbury

If it's true that alcohol led to this crash, then folks may assume that driver will be charged, and that's that. However, there could be more complex factors leading up to the crash which could not only lead to an accomplice to these events but also an avenue through which to get victims and families some much needed help.

Texas has what's called dram shop law, which basically says bars and other establishments can be liable for an accident resulting from their illegal over-service to an obviously intoxicated person. If someone is stumbling around, slurring their speech, or is otherwise a clear danger to themselves and others, an establishment continuing to serve them is knowingly putting lives at risk.

Just about every adult at some point has seen someone who was obviously intoxicated continue to drink, and the businesses contributing to that have a responsibility to refuse service to those people. When they don't, serious accidents like this can happen. So if it is true that alcohol was a factor here, finding out if a local business contributed to this can be a huge help to those affected by the crash and even the community as a whole. If not that, then ensuring all parties are held responsible for their actions should be reason enough.
