Kevin Fernandez, Bernardo Rodriguez Sanchez, 2 Injured in Car Accident in Irving, TX

Irving, TX -- July 30, 2022, Kevin Fernandez, Bernardo Rodriguez, and two others were injured following an accident where two cars crashed.

Authorities said that the accident happened at around 1:00 a.m. along the Airport Freeway/TX-183 at County Line Road.

Officials said that 23-year-old Marco Espino and 22-year-old Kevin Fernandez were in a Jeep Renegade traveling eastbound on the freeway. Ahead, a Ford F-150 was stopped due to a flat tire. The Jeep then crashed into that pickup.

As a result of the crash, Fernandez had incapacitating injuries while Espino and a 17-year-old in the Jeep had non-incapacitating injuries. The Ford driver, identified as 20-year-old Bernardo Rodriguez Sanchez, may have been injured, as well.

Police said alcohol could be a factor, but further information cannot be confirmed at this time.

Commentary on Kevin Fernandez, Bernardo Rodriguez Sanchez, Car Accident in Irving

It's always concern when authorities bring up alcohol, though folks should take that with a grain of salt while the details are still unconfirmed. There could be other factors involved here, and police simply brought up alcohol due to it being a common factor at 1:00 a.m. If it was a factor, though, that could mean this crash involves more than just the two drivers. There could also be a local bar responsible for contributing to this accident.

Put simply, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Bars, liquor stores, restaurants, and other venues can be on the hook when they break the law and get people hurt. Not only can this be of significant help to the victims and families, it can also serve to ensure those businesses clean up their act before more people get hurt.

Unfortunately, this is not the sort of thing authorities tend to look into on their own. It's more likely that getting to the bottom of what happened here and who's responsible will require more thorough independent investigations.
