If the allegations here turn out to be true, it's important to clarify if alcohol was the intoxicant as well as where the alcohol came from. Put simply, a lot of accidents like this involve people who were illegally over-served by a local bar or a similar venue. This can make that establishment liable under dram shop law, which can not only help the injured victims but also hold accountable a negligent business that would otherwise continue their reckless behavior. Is that something authorities are looking into here?
