4-year-old Injured in Alleged DWI Accident on Port Aransas Beach

If the details surrounding this incident are accurate, then no doubt there will be consequences for a child being sent to the hospital. But in all the chaos, it may be easy for something important to slip through the cracks. For example, alcohol-related accidents can involve more than just a drunk driver. If evidence shows a local alcohol provider illegally over-served them, they can be on the hook through dram shop law for contributing to the victim's injuries. Is that something authorities looked into here? Common or not, it's important that those involved have every opportunity to get the help they need.
