It's not my place to say whether or not the allegations in these reports is true. Rather, I try to focus on what can be done to help the people involved in such accidents. It just so happens the allegations of intoxicated driving could present complex yet unique avenues through which people can get the help they need. It's all about whether or not a negligent alcohol provider contributing to the crash.

Basically, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Bars, liquor stores, restaurants, and even gas stations must be held responsible when their actions cause harm to others. Dram shop gives victims and families the tools to both hold those businesses accountable while also ensuring people get as much help as possible.

Did anything like that happen here? Like I said, it's unclear right now. But while authorities may focus on one person's actions, there may need to be additional steps to ensure all parties are held appropriately accountable.
