Commentary on Travis Rokovich Jr. Single-Vehicle Accident in Williamson County
It obviously stands out anytime authorities bring up alcohol, but let's be clear that someone saying they had been drinking doesn't automatically mean they did anything wrong. That could be as true for someone who had a six as someone who had a glass of champagne. One of those people likely wouldn't be doing anything illegal. If they were drunk, it would be important to find out if a business over-served them since that business could be liable under dram shop law for the resulting injuries.
However, if alcohol wasn't a factor, considering all of the other possibilities that can cause a single vehicle wreck would be crucial. That's where authorities tend to come up short. When it comes to things like road design, manufacturing defects, faulty tires, and other less likely possibilities, it's easy for details to slip through the cracks. That's why I have articles like the one below so folks can expand beyond their narrow vision and consider what else may have led to the crash.
