Commentary on Gregory White, Joe Hedgeman Car Accident in Sunnyvale

Just to be clear up front, it's best to take these early reports with a grain of salt. Even bringing up something as concerning as the possibility of alcohol, it's worth taking things with a grain of salt until more facts are available. Perhaps authorities only mention alcohol because it's standard procedure to look into. If it was a factor, though, that could mean complex avenues to getting folks the help they need.

Primarily, this is due to the possibility of dram shop law. If evidence shows alcohol was a factor, it would then be important to find out where that alcohol came from. If somewhere like a bar or liquor store recklessly over-served someone, they can then be on the hook for contributing to a resulting accident. Not only does dram shop help to hold those businesses accountable, it can also provide opportunities to get people the help they need which they may not have otherwise had access to.

Again, that's just a possibility right now. I wouldn't suggest overlooking alcohol anymore than I would possibilities like mechanical issues, fatigue, medical conditions, road hazards product defects, etc. Likely or not, getting the full story is a crucial step toward ensuring people get the help they need.
