Commentary on DART Bus Accident on Davis Street in Dallas
It's possible police only brought up alcohol because it's a common factor, and investigations could show alcohol had nothing to do with this. If it did, however, that can make things quite a bit more complex. This is due to dram shop law, which says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. If something like that happened here, getting help for someone and getting a negligent business to clean up its act would certainly be worth investigating things more thoroughly. Are those steps being taken here?
