Commentary on Davin Blu Beers Car Accident in Newton County
Seeing alcohol brought up in these reports concerns me for reasons folks might not consider. One concern is that if it was a factor, authorities may not realize that there could be a local business liable for contributing to the victim's injuries by illegally over-serving them. This is called dram shop law, and it usually requires independent investigations.
The other concern is that if alcohol was not a factor, its seriousness may distract authorities from looking into other, less common possible factors. Something like mechanical defects, for example, is incredibly complex. But if authorities just put all of their focus on a more common explanation only to find it wasn't a factor at all, they may let something important slip through the cracks. Getting folks the help they need means knowing the whole story. In my experience, it takes more than a simple crash report from authorities to get that story.
