Commentary on Stephanie Sandoval Pedestrian Accident in El Paso

If the allegations here are true, then there may certainly be stiff consequences for someone being drunk and hitting a pedestrian. But are they the only ones who did something wrong here? Just after 2:00 a.m., accidents with facts like these often involve someone who was drinking at a local bar. But why does that matter?

It's worth looking into that since bars can be liable under dram shop law for injuries resulting from their negligent over-service to someone who is obviously intoxicated. Not only does this provide a source of assistance for victims and families, but it also takes steps to getting those reckless establishments to clean up their act before they get more people hurt. Is that something authorities have looked into here?
