Commentary on John Whitehead Car Accident in Montgomery County

If the allegations surrounding this incident are true, there may be some complex issues worth addressing. Especially if alcohol was a factor, simply charging the driver isn't likely to get folks the help they need. That's why it's important the public knows things like dram shop law.

John Whitehead Injured in Single-Vehicle Accident in Montgomery County, TX

To put it simply, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. A bar or restaurant over-serving people knowingly breaks the rules and puts the community and even their own customers at risk. Yet too often, they get off scot-free because even authorities didn't bother to go beyond simply charging the drunk driver. For a family in need of help, this just isn't good enough.

So while I can't say what did or didn't happen here, these are red flags that would be downright irresponsible to ignore. Any culpable party involved here should have their day in court to face whatever consequences are appropriate. The fact people involved here can get help from that only makes it that much more important.
