Commentary on Ramon Ramirez Pedestrian Accident in Lubbock
These are obviously concerning details, and the possibility someone may have done this intentionally is just unthinkable. One thing that also stands out in news coverage is that there's a restaurant in this particular shopping center. At 2:00 a.m., that raises the very serious concern that alcohol may have contributed to this in some way. If that's true, then not only might there be a driver who needs to be held accountable, but a business may have also played a role if they illegally over-served someone. One way or another, the victim's loved ones deserve to know what happened here and who all contributed to such tragic events. Are authorities taking the proper steps to get them those answers?
