Commentary on Car Accident on East Grand in Dallas
When people see a late night single-vehicle wreck like this, they tend to assume the driver was on their phone or drunk. Those are certainly common factors. Alcohol in particular is worth considering since complicit alcohol providers can be liable if they illegally over-served the driver (this is called dram shop law).
With that being said, it's important investigators also look into other possibilities. Tire blowouts, defects, road hazards, other reckless drivers that left the scene--even if something seems unlikely, getting answers for a victim's family makes it worth the effort. That's especially true if it turns out authorities let something slip through the cracks.
