Commentary on Christopher Armstrong Pedestrian Accident in Harris County

There are a few factors to consider with an accident like this. One is the driver, obviously, and what they were doing. Were they on their phone? Drunk? Speeding? While this may have been unavoidable, drivers aren't always being responsible and giving themselves an opportunity to avoid otherwise avoidable accidents. Could that be something that happened here?

Additionally, I've seen reports suggest the victim here was drunk. Now, there's nothing inherently wrong with drinking, and walking instead of driving is actually the right thing to do. But I've seen situations where a bar illegally over-served someone to the point they didn't realize they were walking into traffic. If something like that happened here, then there could be a business responsible for contributing to this tragic event under dram shop law. Hopefully steps were taken to get clear answers here. I'd hate to think after all this time no one did the right thing by getting this man's loved ones the answers they deserve.
