Commentary on Henderson Man Motorcycle Accident on I-30 in Arlington

It's always concerning whenever authorities bring up alcohol. Maybe that isn't what happened here, but it certainly wouldn't be shocking to see a crash at 3:00 a.m. involve alcohol. What makes this unique, however, is the possibility of dram shop law.

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. Could it be some local business contributed to this crash and needs to be held accountable? It should at least be worth the effort to find out for certain if it means getting folks the help they need.
