If it's true that alcohol was a factor here, then folks may see this all as pretty open-and-shut. In reality, though, a drunk driving crash usually involves more than just an intoxicated driver.

A lot of alcohol-related crashes also involve negligent alcohol providers that illegally over-served that driver, making them potentially liable under dram shop law for their role in the accident. This can both get people much needed help while also ensuring a reckless business cleans up its act. That's why crashes like this are often better off in the hands of independent investigators. Are those steps being taken here?
