While it's unconfirmed that alcohol was a factor here, it's an important possibility to consider if only due to the fact there could be more than just a negligent driver involved. Something not a lot of people talk about is dram shop law, which says an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Not only can this be of significant help to victims and families, it can also work to hold those businesses accountable so they clean up their act. Did that happen here, and are the right professionals working to find out for certain?
