Commentary on Multi-Car Accident on 1st Street in Austin
This soon after last call, folks will no doubt think alcohol had to have been a factor here. That's certainly important to consider, especially since a lot of accidents like this end up falling within dram shop law, which allows injured parties to hold bars accountable if the establishment's illegal over-serve of alcohol contributed to the crash. But that's still just one possibility right now. Getting folks the help they need means considering all possible factors, even if they seem unlikely. That's why independent investigators often catch things that authorities overlook. Would independent investigations do the same here?
