Commentary on Edwardo Zamora Car Accident in Waco
Authorities didn't say who or what they think caused this tragic event. At 2:00 a.m., people will no doubt assume alcohol was a factor. Frankly, that's a common explanation. Moreover, it's common that this sort of thing involves a local alcohol provider illegally over-serving someone, which could make them liable under dram shop law.
Is that something authorities are looking into here? What about less common factors, such as mechanical defects, road hazards, or medical conditions? At the end of the day, those affected by this tragedy deserve to know they're getting the full story as well as any opportunity possible to get the help they need.
