This early in the morning, to be a bit blunt, if would be more surprising if alcohol wasn't involved. It's all too common in the early hours around last call, and it's important to look into. The fact police now allege that there was an intoxicated driver here, it's even more important to look into the possibility a local alcohol is responsible for contributing to all of this.

This is due to dram shop law, which says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. That could be a bar, restaurant, liquor store, or even a gas station. If something like that happened here, shouldn't steps be taken to ensure the right parties are held accountable--especially if it can get people the help they need?

With all that said, dram shop is just one possibility of many. I certainly can't say if it applies here, but as investigations continue, it's important to ensure opportunities to get people the help they deserve don't slip through the cracks.
