Brenda Belmontes Killed in Pedestrian Accident in McAllen, TX

The exact charges surrounding this accident aren't clear, and I certainly don't want to jump to conclusions. Obviously, this sort of report brings to mind the possibility of alcohol, considering a 2:30 a.m. crash in a downtown area is often a sign someone was at a local bar. That's especially important to consider since that bar could be liable under dram shop law if they over-served the driver--not to mention the consequences they can face for serving a teenager. But that's just one possibility of many. This could be anything from a hit-and-run to a warrant to charges completely unrelated to the collision. What matters right now is getting answers for the victim's loved ones and finding out what path may lay ahead.
