Austin, TX Car Accident Injures 1 on Parker Lane at Riverside Drive

It's not clear exactly what happened here, though folks may be quick to assume someone was drunk. That's pretty darn common at 1:00 a.m. on a Friday, and it could even lead to complex consequences. That's not just to say a drunk driver will be charged, but there could also be a bar liable for the injuries under dram shop law if they were in part the result of the bar illegally over-serving the driver.

Is that something authorities looked into here? If not, it'd likely be one of many possibilities authorities tend to overlook. It's one of the reasons I encourage folks to consider independent investigators who can ensure even unlikely possible factors get the attention they deserve. Are those steps being taken here? It could be crucial in getting someone the help they seriously need.
