Quanah, TX Pedestrian Accident highway 6 11th Street

Believe it or not, the details of the pedestrian allegedly being under the influence of alcohol could make this situation far more complex than it seems. In fact, it could mean there's someone out there responsible for this tragic event who needs to be held accountable. Put simply, if a local alcohol provider over-served the victim, and the alcohol is what led to the fatal accident, that establishment can be held liable under dram shop law for their negligent actions. Not only could this get a dangerous business to clean up its act, it could ensure a man's loved ones know that someone was being held accountable for their actions. Is this something authorities have looked into, or will that require investigations from independent professionals?
