Commentary on Dylan Taylor, Raven Marshall Car Accident in Harris County
While the reports here are rather sparse, any crash allegedly involving an intoxicated driver can present unique circumstances.
For example, if evidence shows that alcohol led to an accident, then where did that alcohol come from? Texas dram shop law says that an alcohol provider, such as a bar, who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. So not only could there be a driver who needs to face consequences, there could be a local business responsible for the victims' injuries that also needs to answer for their actions.
Maybe nothing like that happened here, but I have yet to see any indication that authorities are being thorough enough to look into these possibilities.
