Commentary on Primitivo Ojeda Rodriguez Car Accident in Harris County

I'd like to address the possible BAC mentioned by officials, but I want to be clear this is not to criticize the victim. In fact, experience tells me there's a distinct possibility someone else contributed to his tragic death: a local bar.

At 6:00 a.m., one doesn't usually wake up, get nearly three times the legal limit of alcohol in them, then get in their car and take off. More often, someone who is intoxicated at this time of day is still intoxicated from the previous night. But why does that matter?

Let's say, for example, someone is too drunk to driver at 6:00 a.m., but their last drink was at a bar that night prior. If they were intoxicated enough to go home, get some sleep, and still be legally intoxicated, that's a huge red flag that the bar illegally over-served them. As such, that establishment could be liable for a resulting accident under dram shop law.

Like I said, I have absolutely no evidence at this time to say that happened here. There are all kinds of possible scenarios to consider. But too often, I speak to families who didn't even realize that they had the right to confront a negligent alcohol provider for breaking the law and contributing to the death of their loved one. It's why I bring up dram shop whenever possible, even if it may be a rather grim topic. At the end of the day, someone lost their life here. Shouldn't their loved ones at least know they're getting the whole story? Would further investigations here show there's something important authorities failed to address?
