Commentary on Car Accident on US 277 at Grand Canal in San Angelo
Any late night crash is going to raise some red flags, and it's important to understand how a crash like this can become incredibly complex. For example, late night crashes often involve alcohol. That can lead to the revelation that a local business illegally over-served someone who was obviously intoxicated, which can then make the establishment liable under dram shop law for their role in the crash. I'm not saying alcohol was a factor here, but it's important folks have the tools and evidence to pursue whatever possible avenues there are to get the help they deserve.
