Commentary on Ricardo Rodrigues Rivera Car Accident in Fort Worth
While police seem to suspect alcohol as a factor here, it appears the moments following the crash may have been a bit chaotic. Maybe alcohol was a factor here, and maybe there's even a local bar liable for illegally over-serving the driver. That said, this may simply be authorities jumping to conclusions. Did they consider other possibilities--even unlikely things like mechanical issues? If nothing else, getting folks the help they need means ensuring nothing important slips through the cracks.
