Commentary on David Michael Vaughn Alleged DWI Accident in Hurst
It's not my place to say if any of these allegations are true or not. Instead, it's important folks understand there could be another party that contributed to this accident who has yet to be confronted.
At 2:30 a.m., a lot crashes allegedly involving intoxicated drivers turn out to be folks who were illegally over-served by a local bar. When that happens, those bars can be liable under dram shop law for breaking the law and contributing to the victim's injuries.
While authorities typically go to great lengths to see that intoxicated drivers have a court date, steps are rarely taken to confront negligent alcohol providers unless independent investigators call them out. It remains to be seen if proper steps are being taken here to get the victim and their family the answers they deserve.
