Commentary on Yuping Zhou Car Accident in University Park

I certainly can't confirm if alcohol was a factor here without seeing more evidence, but it's always important to take those possibilities seriously. A big part of that is because the allegedly drunk driver isn't always the only person that needs to be held responsible. There can also be local alcohol providers responsible for their role in the crash.

Texas has dram shop law which says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. If a bar over-serves someone, and that results in people getting harmed, those people can confront that alcohol provider to ensure they're held accountable just as drunk drivers are held accountable. Again, that may not have happened here, but it's important to consider any opportunity to get folks the help they need.
