Austin, TX -- May 20, 2022, one person was injured due to an accident where a vehicle struck a cyclist along Burleson Road.

Commentary on Timothy Lawrence Salyer Hit-and-run Accident in Austin

It's not really clear if police actually apprehended the driver, unless the claim that driver had been drinking was just baseless speculation. Quite frankly, it wouldn't be too surprising. It's all too common in hit-and-runs. It could then lead to a complex legal path called dram shop law where a local business could actually be liable if they illegally over-served the driver. Is that something authorities have looked into here? Are there more details the public needs to be aware of? Do steps need to be taken to identify this driver? I can't help but wonder if the right people are handling these events to ensure the victim gets all the help they can under Texas law.
