Commentary on Colby Barnett Car Accident in Irving

It's obviously serious when authorities mention alcohol as a possibility, especially since there could be an alcohol provider responsible for the victim's injuries under dram shop law if they illegally over-served the victim. But just because a report mentions alcohol doesn't automatically make it the cause of the crash.

I can't begin to count how many times I had further investigations done into reports where police blamed a driver for their own injuries only for the more thorough reconstructions to reveal factors authorities completely overlooked. It's even possible that alcohol wasn't involved at all, and police only brought it up because it's standard procedure to look into it.

Maybe investigations wouldn't reveal anything unusual here, but there's no reason to jump to conclusions without knowing all the facts. Have steps been taken to ensure the facts surrounding this crash are clear?
