According to reports the incident happened around 4:35 a.m. on I-10 East at mile marker 32. Preliminary investigation suggests Acosta was driving a Toyota Camry west in the eastbound roadway, the wrong direction, when she collided head-on with an oncoming Ford F-150.

Commentary on Roxanna Acosta Accident on I-10 in El Paso

Police say both drivers are suspected of being intoxicated after this crash, but only one of them seems to have been impaired enough to enter a limited-access highway going the wrong direction. I don't say that in judgment or to bad-mouth the woman who suffered serious injuries; rather, I mention it because after crashes like this it often comes to light that a local business played a part and should be held accountable.

Roxanne Acosta Injured in Wrong-Way Crash on I-10 in El Paso, TX

Let me explain with an example: A while back, I handled a crash where a drunk driver went the wrong direction down a roadway and hit a family's vehicle head-on, injuring their young son. We looked into what happened on the family's behalf and found the man was egregiously over-served at a local bar's happy hour earlier that day. The bar staff happily refilled his glass despite him being too drunk to sit straight in his chair, which means they violated Texas dram shop law. When a business illegally sells or serves alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person like that, it may be liable for any injuries its customer causes or suffers while under the influence.

Not every DWI crash starts with a dram shop violation, but they're far more common than some might realize. A proper investigation will account for that possibility, and learning whether illegal over-service was an issue in El Paso could lead to much-needed sources of help for the victims. Will it be investigated here?
