Commentary on Steven Storey Motorcycle Accident in Midland

Right now, the suspicion of alcohol remains unconfirmed, so it's important not to jump to conclusions. It is important to look into, of course, and it's especially important to find out if a local alcohol provider illegally over-served the victim. Texas dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. It's not the sort of thing authorities tend to look into, which is why thorough independent investigations are often necessary.

But some other details also make me wonder if this all wouldn't be better off in the hands of independent professionals. The location where this occurred appears to have stop signs for San Francisco and not Magellan. Even if evidence shows the victim was going at high speeds, was it to the point that a reasonably prudent driver wouldn't have been able to see and wait for the victim? And that's only if the suspicion of high speeds is even true. I've had cases where all the blame was on a motorcyclist only for it to turn out authorities were just jumping to conclusions. What steps are being taken here to verify that the victim's loved ones are actually getting the full story?
