Commentary on Single-Vehicle Accident on CR 328 in Smith County

It's concerning when authorities bring up alcohol, though folks should keep in mind that reports like this don't always tell the whole story. I've had plenty of folks come to me where authorities blamed them for a crash only for more thorough investigations from our teams to show they did nothing wrong or at least that there were more serious factors. On the other hand, when alcohol is a factor, I've also had plenty of situations where the driver's actions weren't the only ones worth confronting.

A lot of crashes like this involved negligent alcohol providers illegally over-serving drivers, which can make them liable under Texas dram shop law. Could it be something like that happened here? Maybe, and maybe not. It's important professionals who can get all of the facts handle things so the evidence can speak for itself. That's almost always the most prudent path to getting people the help they need. Who would deserve that prudence if not a young child with serious injuries?
