Commentary on Jose Ibarra Car Accident in Harris County

To be a bit blunt, folks tend to assume a late night crash like this must have involved alcohol. That's especially true in Harris County where drunk driving is all too common. But I don't bring this up to blame someone who isn't around to defend himself. On the contrary, there could be a local business culpable for the chaos that happened here.

Put simply, a lot of serious crashes involved folks on their way home from bars or other establishments. If evidence shows a business illegally over-serves an obviously intoxicated patron, they can be liable under dram shop law for harm resulting from that intoxication.

Of course, I only bring this up because it's common. There's not even evidence at this time that the man killed in the crash did anything wrong. While things like alcohol or speeding are common, a proper investigation should also consider mechanical issues, medical emergencies, tire blowouts, road hazards, and other possibilities (likely or not) that authorities may have overlooked. Are those steps being taken here?
