William Canchola Jr. Killed in Llano County, TX Rollover Accident

Llano County, TX — April 3, 2022, 35-year-old William Canchola Sr. died in a single-vehicle accident on County Road 204 in Llano County.

According to reports the incident happened around 10:45 a.m. on CR 204 near McDonald Street. Preliminary investigation suggests Canchola was driving a Chevrolet Tahoe south on Mcdonald at alleged high speeds when he approached the "T" intersection with CR 204. He cut the corner during a left turn and his vehicle fishtailed on the road's loose gravel surface. It slid right, then left when he over-corrected. It then overturned and rolled over several times before coming to rest upright off the north side of the road.

Canchola was ejected during the rollover and suffered fatal injuries. Blood tests later showed he had a BAC of .171 at the time of the accident.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on William Canchola Jr. Accident in Llano County

If reports are right and the victim's blood-alcohol concentration was past the legal limit for intoxication, some may feel there isn't much else to say about that since his tragic passing means he's beyond the reach of legal consequences. However, evidence that he was under the influence may mean there's more to investigate--including where his drinks came from.

Texas dram shop law holds businesses that over-serve alcohol to obviously intoxicated customers responsible for the injuries their patrons cause or suffer while under the influence. Not every DWI crash starts with a dram violation by a law-breaking bar, but finding out whether that happened is an important and too-often-neglected step in a DWI investigation.

I'm not saying I know of a particular business that broke the law in Llano County, but it seems important to find out for sure one way or the other in case one is endangering its customers and community. So will the police do anything about that? Frankly I doubt it. 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 get independent help to prove it. With the evidence found by expert investigators, many victims and families have held bad businesses accountable for the terrible damage they helped cause.
