Three Injured in Multi-Car Accident on South Freeway in Fort Worth, TX

Fort Worth, TX -- June 20, 2022, three people were injured due to an accident where multiple cars crashed along the South Freeway.

Officials reported that the crash took place at around 1:15 a.m. along I-35W at Altamesa near the I-20 interchange.

Authorities said that a 32-year-old Denton man was in a Ford F-250 traveling northbound on the freeway. Ahead, a Dodge and a Ford Crown Vic were stationary due to one of them being disabled. While there, the Denton man's vehicle somehow rear-ended them.

As a result of the crash, a 17-year-old outside the stationary vehicles had incapacitating injuries. That victim's 19-year-old brother had non-incapacitating injuries. The Denton man reportedly had possible injuries, as well.

Police believe that alcohol was a factor in the crash. No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Multi-Car Accident on South Freeway in Fort Worth

Anytime police believe alcohol is a factor in a crash, they tend to charge the driver and call the matter closed. Oftentimes, though, there is an accomplice who can be responsible for the victim's injuries, yet authorities overlook them. Put simply, it's important to find out if a local alcohol provider contributed to the crash.

Texas 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, restaurants, clubs, liquor stores--these businesses have rules to follow. Breaking them means people get hurt, so why shouldn't they be held accountable for the suffering caused by their actions? Dram shop can address this, but it usually requires having independent investigators look into things more thoroughly. Were those steps ever taken here?
