One Injured in Alleged DWI Accident on General McMullen Drive in San Antonio, TX
San Antonio, TX -- July 22, 2022, one person was injured due to an accident on General McMullen allegedly involving an intoxicated driver.
Investigators reported that the crash took place at around 9:27 p.m. along South General McMullen Drive just south of Castroville Road.
In reports, officials said that a southbound Toyota Corolla somehow slammed into a Dodge Caravan which was waiting at a red light. This then caused collision with a Ford F-250 and a Ford Fusion.
The passenger in the Toyota, identified only as a 32-year-old man, reportedly had serious injuries due to the crash. It's unclear if anyone else was hurt. Police say that the driver of the Toyota was charged for intoxication assault. This and other details are still under investigation.
Commentary on Alleged DWI Accident on General McMullen in San Antonio
It's not for me to say if the allegations here are true or not. That's for authorities to sort out. But one thing that's important to consider is how folks can get the help they need, and a crash with details like these can involve unique possible consequences.
For example, if alcohol contributed to the crash, there could be a local bar responsible for contributing to the victim's injuries. It's illegal in Texas to over-serve someone who is obviously intoxicated. If doing so leads to someone getting hurt, dram shop law allows the victims and families to hold that establishment accountable for their actions.
Quite frankly, dram shop is not the sort of thing authorities tend to look into on their own. That's why I can't help wondering if there are ways to get folks here the help they need which aren't yet being explored.
