Nueces County, TX -- July 6, 2022, a man was killed and one person was hurt due to an accident where their vehicle crashed off FM 666.

Authorities reported that the crash took place at around 6:26 a.m. along FM 666 near FM 3088.

Investigators said that a 23-year-old woman and a 59-year-old man were in a Chevy Cavalier traveling southbound on FM 666. The vehicle lost control, veered off-road, then crashed into a pole.

The passenger sustained fatal injuries due to the crash. The driver reportedly had non-incapacitating injuries due to the crash.

Commentary on Fatal Car Accident on FM 666 in Nueces County

It's obviously serious anytime authorities bring up alcohol, though it's important to take those suspicions seriously. This early in the morning, alcohol can be a sign of a driver being illegally over-served.

If a bar, for example, serves someone to the point they're still too drunk to drive hours after last call, it almost always means that the establishment over-served the driver. This could make them liable under dram shop law for their role in the resulting crash.

Again, that may not be what happened here, and I would certainly hope investigators are thorough enough to also consider things like fatigue, medical conditions, tire blowouts, mechanical defects, etc. The key is to ensure those involved know they're getting the full story, especially if someone out there needs to take responsibility for contributing to the crash.
