Commentary on John Peacock Car Accident in Helotes

This early in the morning, any crash is going to raise the possibility of alcohol. Authorities claiming to have a BAC test showing the driver was at least two and a half times the legal limit only furthers those concerns. But I don't say this to cast aspersions on the victim. On the contrary, it's possible someone out there is responsible for contributing to his death.

Texas has what's called dram shop law. It basically says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Bars that recklessly serve people to the point they get themselves or someone else hurt shouldn't be allowed to simply continue business as usual like nothing happened. Dram shop can help ensure they face the appropriate consequences.

Are steps being taken to consider these possibilities so the victim's loved ones can get the answers they deserve?
