Commentary on Pearsall Man Car Accident on US 181 in Wilson County

Alcohol is always serious to consider in these situations, given how common a factor it is. If it did lead to the crash, it's possible some local bar is responsible for over-serving the driver. Put simply, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. If that happened here, it would be important to address those issues and get folks the help they deserve.

That said, there are other factors that can lead to a serious crash which are important to consider, as well. Mechanical issues, tire defects, road hazards, other drivers that left the scene--likely or not, a proper investigation will consider these possibilities. Otherwise, something important may slip through the cracks. Are proper steps being taken here?
