With reports like this, it's important to take claims with a grain of salt. Could this all just be due to alcohol? Certainly, though even that can be complex given the common scenario of a local bar illegally over-serving someone and therefore being liable for a resulting crash due to dram shop law. But I've handled many wrecks where it turned out police missed something important, and even reports like these can warrant more thorough independent investigations. Instead of looking for ways to blame people, it's best to focus on what can be done to ensure nothing slips through the cracks.
