According to reports the incident happened around 9:50 p.m. on Highway 191 near FM 1788.

Commentary on Mandy Capps Accident in Midland

Reports indicate the accident victim had a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) of .258 at the time. I don't say that with any judgment, but evidence that she was more than three times the legal limit for intoxication may mean there's more to this investigation than folks realize.

Texas dram shop law holds businesses that over-serve alcohol responsible for the injuries their intoxicated patrons cause or suffer while under the influence. Not every DWI crash starts with a law-breaking bar, but finding out where the drinks came from is an important and often-neglected step when ensuring families get justice for their loss.

I'm not saying I know of a particular business that over-served the victim, but it seems like an important detail to work out in case someone is endangering their customers and community. So will the police do anything about it? Unfortunately, probably not. After these crashes they rarely look past the drivers to where they drank, so if a dram violation is suspected it's usually best to seek help elsewhere from people who know how to get the needed proof. With that in hand many victims and families have held bad businesses accountable for the devastating damage they helped cause.
