Nancy Paiz-Estrada Injured in Accident on Rendon Crowley Rd in Fort Worth, TX

Fort Worth, TX — May 26, 2022, 41-year-old Nancy Paiz-Estrada was injured in a crash with an alleged DWI driver on Rendon Crowley Road in Fort Worth.

Authorities say the incident happened around 1:00 a.m. on East Rendon Crowley near North Wildcat Way. Preliminary investigation suggests a Ram 3500 pickup was eastbound on Crowley as Paiz-Estrada was traveling west on the other side in a Nissan Altima.

According to reports, the 61-year-old Ram driver had no headlights on and crossed over the center line, where he crashed head-on with the Nissan.

Paiz-Estrada suffered serious injuries in the collision. The other driver was unhurt.

Investigators suspected the Ram driver of being intoxicated at the time of the wreck and arrested him on a potential DWI charge.

No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Nancy Paiz-Estrada Accident in Fort Worth

According to reports investigators think alcohol consumption might have been a factor here. Considering how the crash was described I understand that suspicion, but if intoxication's on their radar then they should try to prove it. In most cases that means either drawing blood for testing or getting hospital treatment records. It's unclear whether either was done here, but neither would surprise me.

If evidence confirms their suspicions then some might the only thing left is to charge the driver accordingly. However, there may be more to it as a local alcohol provider might have over-served him. If it did, that business may be responsible for the crash victim's injuries under Texas dram shop law.

When a licensed alcohol vendor like a bar or restaurant over-serves an obviously intoxicated customer and that customer causes or suffers injuries while under the influence, that business broke the law. In those cases it may be liable for any damage their customer caused, such as the crash victim's injuries on Crowley Road.

Dram shop gives people hurt by drunk drivers the right to seek help from the business that made them drunk in the first place. It also teaches those businesses a serious lesson about getting their priorities straight and obeying the law. It may or may not be a factor in the Fort Worth crash, and I'm not saying I know of a specific business that should be investigated. If police don't plan to look into that, though, an independent investigation may be best to ensure all the facts are found.
