Commentary on UTV Accident on Mile 6 1/2 in Hidalgo County

While it's important that investigators look into other possibilities here before everyone goes jumping to conclusions, it's important to understand why the possibility of alcohol can make things rather complex here.

Texas has a unique area of the law called dram shop law. Basically, it says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Whether that's a restaurant, bar, or liquor store, a business putting lives at risk needs to be held accountable. However, authorities don't often look into these factors on their own, which is why I can't help wondering if they're actually getting the full story here.
