It's important to be thorough anytime police suggest alcohol contributed to a crash. That's not simply to throw blame around but rather to ensure folks have every opportunity to get the help they need.

Authorities don't often discuss dram shop law, for example. It says bars and other businesses can be liable for contributing to a crash which was the result of them over-serving someone who was already obviously intoxicated. Did something like that happen here? That's certainly not for me to say, and there are no doubt other possible factors investigators need to look into. I can't help but wonder if those experienced investigators ever gave these events the attention they needed.
