Commentary on Christine McNulty Accident on US-290 in Elgin

Folks get far too accustomed to reading that an accident may be due to alcohol as investigators mentioned in their reports. It's common enough in Texas that few are surprised to see it mentioned after a driver runs a light or otherwise acts unsafely.

It's not clear if police found anything of substance to back up their theory, but even the possibility of alcohol requires careful attention. That means finding evidence clarifying how much of a role it played (if any) as well as tracking down where it was consumed. That second part is more important than people might realize because an alcohol vendor might be responsible for the injuries caused under dram shop law.

However, there's every chance that police were just spitballing about the crash's cause when they mentioned alcohol. I'm not saying it was definitely involved, let alone that a business over-served it and is liable for the damage done. The important thing is that the full and true story is found and only the facts tell it. Will law enforcement devote the time and attention to learning the whole truth of the wreck?
