Commentary on Refugio Calamaco Single-Vehicle Accident in Houston

When it comes to late night crashes, folks tend to assume the driver must have been drunk. That's certainly common--especially in Houston. That's why it's important to look into things like dram shop law since there could be a local alcohol provider that over-served the victim.

But that's just one possible factor. Even unlikely factors can cause a single-vehicle wreck. Without the right experience and tools, authorities can easily overlook these possibilities. Understanding these possibilities, then, can be crucial for victims and families looking for answers. Are proper steps being taken here to get those answers?
