Woman, Man Injured in Car Accident on Broadway in Cuero, TX

Cuero, TX -- May 29, 2022, a woman and a man were injured after an accident where their vehicle crashed into a parked vehicle on Broadway.

Initial reports indicated that the crash happened at around 12:27 a.m. at the itnersection of Broadway Street and Indianola Street.

According to officials, a 44-year-old woman and a 40-year-old man were in a Hyundai Sonata traveling eastbound along Broadway. The vehicle somehow went to the right where it crashed into an unoccupied vehicle.

The woman was said to have non-incapacitating injuries while the man reportedly had incapacitating injuries. Police alleged that alcohol was a factor in the crash. They did not give any additional details.

Commentary on Car Accident on Broadway in Cuero

It's certainly not my place to say if the allegations of drunk driving are true here, but there could be unique factors surrounding the crash that authorities have yet to consider. Especially since this happened along a roadway with plenty of drinking establishments, is it possible one of those businesses is liable for contributing to this crash?

That may sound odd, but it has to do with Texas dram shop law. Essentially, the law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. A restaurant, for example, serving someone whose intoxication makes them a clear danger to themselves and others is breaking the law and putting lives at risk. So why shouldn't they be held accountable for their actions just as drunk drivers are held accountable for theirs?

Again, there could be other factors involved here. I certainly don't think anyone should jump to conclusions. But too often I see people who can get some much needed help completely unaware of their rights simply because no one bothered to inform them. Hopefully steps are being taken here to ensure those involved get the help they deserve.
