Commentary on Single-Vehicle Accident on Shoreline in Corpus Christi
It's not surprisinfg for authorities to look into alcohol following any serious crash early in the morning. Just after midnight Sunday just so happens to be the worst time of the week for drunk driving as many folks are headed home after Saturday night out at bars. This is especially important to consider with the possibility one of those bars illegally over-served the driver, since they an actually be liable for their role in the victims' injuries under dram shop law.
That said, jumping to conclusions isn't going to help anyone. It's just as important to look into things like mechanical issues, medical emergencies, road hazards, fatigue, or even tire defects as possibilities, however likely they may or may not be. Whatever happened here, it's best to let the evidence speak for itself, and that often means ensuring independent investigators look into things as soon as possible.
