Commentary on Victoria Alexandra Ruiz 18-wheeler Accident in El Paso

It's obviously serious anytime authorities bring up alcohol, but it should be made clear that it hasn't been confirmed here. If evidence does show alcohol was a factor, that could mean a local bar is liable for the victim's injuries under dram shop law if they illegally over-served the driver. Otherwise, though, there could be any number of other factors to consider.

Were the truck's lights on? Was it pulling off the shoulder? Was there something wrong with the vehicle's brakes, airbags, or seatbelts? Were any other vehicles involved? Likely or not, getting folks the help they need means considering all possibilities. Especially if someone out there is responsible for what happened here, taking steps to get someone the help they need should always be a priority.
