Two Injured in Car Accident on Bush Turnpike at Independence Parkway in Plano, TX

Plano, TX -- November 4, 2021, two people were injured following an accident where a vehicle crashed along the President George Bush Turnpike.

Authorities reported that the crash took place at around 12:00 a.m. along the Bush Turnpike near Independence.

According to officials, two people were in a vehicle traveling westbound, allegedly in a pursuit with police. The vehicle lost control and crashed, reportedly causing incapacitating injuries to the driver and possible injuries to the passenger.

Right now, authorities are looking into alcohol as a possible factor. The details in these reports have not yet been officially confirmed.

These are obviously serious allegations, but the simple possibility of alcohol could make this a lot more complex than people may realize. Folks don't always make great decisions when under the influence of alcohol, so if it's true that happened here, it's possible that an outside party needs to be held responsible for their role in all of this.

That may sound unusual, but it has to do with dram shop law, which says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. It's not that any of that would excuse someone for being reckless, but rather it would ensure all parties involved faced the appropriate consequences and that the victims had an opportunity to get the help they needed.

To be clear, though, that's all worth investigating based on these reports, but these reports may not even be accurate. For all we know, this was all just some big misunderstanding. I certainly can't say what all happened here without seeing more thorough investigations, so others shouldn't go jumping to conclusions, either.
