Karina Perez Injured in Car Accident in Alvin, TX

Alvin, TX -- June 24, 2022, Karina Perez was injured as the result of an accident where a vehicle crashed along the highway.

Investigators responded to the area of Highway 35 and Kendall Lakes Boulevard at around 2:30 a.m.

Officials said that 42-year-old Karina Perez was in a Nissan XTerra traveling northbound along Highway 35. The vehicle veered off the side of the road where it crashed into a guardrail, then overturned.

Perez sustained incapacitating injuries due to the crash. It appears the driver, identified by sources as Eleazar Gonzalez Moreno, was not injured. Police allege that Moreno was intoxicated at the time due to alcohol. This and other details cannot be confirmed at this time.

Commentary on Karina Perez Car Accident in Alvin

With allegations like these, it's important to understand the potential avenues through which victims and families can get the help they need. If it's true alcohol led to this crash, finding out where that alcohol came from would be a crucial step forward. Why is that?

Put simply, 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. Whether that's a bar, liquor store, restaurant, or gas station, businesses that break the law and contribute to someone's injuries should face consequences just as a drunk driver should be accountable for their actions.

Again, I can't confirm what did or didn't happen here. But serious injuries require serious solutions, and simply looking for a driver to blame isn't likely to solve anything for a victim facing steep hospital bills. Tools like dram shop are important to understand for folks in need of help, and that's why I use crashes like this to help shed light on this too little discussed area of the law.
