Commentary on Javier Dubon Alleged Hit-and-run Accident in Harris County

It's not my place to say what is and isn't true here. I only wish to remind folks about some of the challenges that can come along with incidents like the one described here. If it's true someone left the scene of an accident, it's important to find out why that is. Holding them accountable is obviously a priority for the authorities, but they don't always focus on the whole story.

For example, drunk driving is a common factor in Harris County, and it's a common reason drivers may leave the scene of a crash. This can involve a lot more than just charging a driver, since there could be a local bar that illegally over-served the runaway driver and is liable for their role in the accident under dram shop law.

Again, that's not at all to say that happened here. My point is that folks often read reports like this and assume everything is open-and-shut. When it comes to getting people the help they deserve, steps must always be taken to ensure officials aren't overlooking anything important.
