Jennifer Beckham Injured in Single-Vehicle Crash on RM 337 in Bandera County, TX

Bandera County, TX — July 6, 2022, 37-year-old Jennifer Beckham was injured in a single-vehicle crash on Ranch to Market Road 337 in Bandera County.

According to reports the incident happened around 12:05 a.m. on RM 337 near Coal Kiln Road. Preliminary investigation suggests Beckham was driving a Volkswagen Tiguan west on the road when she allegedly failed to main her lane for unknown reasons. The VW swerved off the road into the north bar ditch, then crashed into a tree.

Beckham suffered serious injuries in the crash. Before she was transported to a hospital she reportedly admitted drinking alcohol prior to the accident to investigators. A breathalyzer test showed a preliminary result of .17.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Jennifer Beckham Accident in Bandera County

If clear evidence confirms that the driver was impaired (as her alleged confession and the breathalyzer test strongly suggest), that may mean she'll face some legal consequences for her choices that night. However, before anyone decides that's the end of the matter there may be other considerations.

For instance, a local bar or other alcohol vendor might have illegally over-served the victim before her crash. If so, that business might be liable for her injuries under dram shop law and would then have a duty to help her get back on her feet.

The possibility of a dram shop violation is just one reason of many why full investigations are so important. Getting people the help they need and deserve is one of the most critical aspects of the law, which understands that someone can make a mistake and still consider whether anyone else was also responsible for the damage done.

I can't say whether a local business had a hand in this wreck, but since the driver reportedly admitted to drinking it seems like a good idea to find out where and how much. Unfortunately, police rarely look into those important details. If independent investigators don't follow up, there's no telling if the whole truth will be uncovered or if the victim will get the help she deserves.
