Commentary on Fatal Single-Vehicle Accident on North Lamar in Austin

A late night crash like this tends to raise some red flags primarily due to how common alcohol is in such accidents. If that is something that happened here, finding out if some local establishment illegally over-served the victim could be crucial in holding that negligent business accountable under dram shop law. But as common as that is, it's not the only factor worth considering.

A big mistake I see from people is simply assuming that a single-vehicle accident had to have been the driver's fault. That's not always true. There are extenuating circumstances that can occur, and unfortunately authorities don't always take steps to give those possibilities the attention they need. Understanding this can be crucial for victims and families in need of answers, and the same could still prove true here.
