It's obviously serious anytime authorities bring up alcohol, but it's important to keep in mind that this remains unconfirmed right now, there could be other factors contributing to this crash, which is thorough independent investigations are often so important. That said, those investigations would also be important if alcohol did indeed contribute to the crash. This is due to the complexity of dram shop law.

Put simply, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. If someone on their way home from a bar crashes because the bar recklessly over-served them, holding that bar accountable for the resulting injuries can be a significant source of help for victims and families while also holding that business accountable for their actions.

Again, it remains to be seen if anything like that happened here. These aren't the kinds of things authorities generally talk about on their own, so taking steps to ensure those involved are getting all the facts will no doubt be crucial.
