Commentary on Rollover Accident on Loop 7 in Henderson County
Anytime authorities bring up alcohol, it's obviously concerning and worth investigation. Part of that is whether or not a local business illegally over-served the victim, since those businesses can be liable for the injuries under dram shop law. But just jumping to conclusions isn't going to help anyone. For all we know, evidence will show that something like mechanical issues, roadway hazards, tire defects, or a medical emergency led to the crash. If authorities aren't looking into those possibilities, then the details may be better off in the hands of independent investigations.
