Commentary on Possible Drunk Driving Accident on Main in Alton

Just to be clear, I can't confirm anything in these reports without conducting a more thorough independent investigation. But if it's true that there was a drunk teenager involved in this crash, it's crucial to find out where that alcohol came from. Not only could someone be in trouble for serving a minor, but they could even be responsible for contributing to the crash itself.

To put it simply, Texas law says someone can be held liable if they give alcohol to a minor, and that alcohol contributes to a crash. Since the law generally holds adults to a higher standard than minors, they can be responsible for contributing to or otherwise facilitating a minor's reckless actions. Could it be something like that happened here? Have authorities looked into these possibilities at all? If nothing else, potentially getting someone some much needed help should be enough reason to look into things further.
