Laredo, TX -- May 8, 2022, Pedro Leyva was killed as the result of an accident where a Jeep and a tractor-trailer collided head-on along the Bob Bullock Loop.

Authorities reported that the crash took place at around 2:00 a.m. along Bob Bullock Loop near the intersection of McPherson Road.

In their reports, officials said that a Jeep somehow got on the wrong side of the road, traveling westbound on eastbound lanes. As a result, the vehicle collided head-on with a tractor-trailer.

Commentary on Pedro Leyva Tractor-Trailer Accident in Laredo

These are obviously some concerning details. Any fatal truck wreck warrants thorough investigations, but a crash involving a wrong-way driver raises some particular red flags. To be a bit blunt, authorities will no doubt look into alcohol as a likely factor. This isn't to throw blame at a victim who can't defend their name. On the contrary, that person could be a victim of a local business illegally over-serving them.

Just after 2:00 a.m., a lot of drunk drivers are out on the roads after bars close their doors. As a result, deadly wrecks can happen within the hours surrounding last call. What makes this complex is that it's illegal for alcohol providers to over-serve someone who is obviously intoxicated. If they do so, and that leads to an accident, that establishment can be liable under dram shop law for their role in the crash.

Like I said, thorough investigations could show there were other extenuating circumstances here. Alcohol is simply the most common possibility, due to the fact that someone who gets on the wrong side of the road is usually well unaware of their surroundings. If that happened here, are proper steps being taken to ensure the right people are held accountable and that the family affected by this terrible loss gets the answers they deserve? I understand that addressing these issues can be sensitive, but I talk to families every day who above all want answers and want to see someone held accountable. Doing so means ensuring no possible factor goes overlooked.
