Authorities say the incident happened around 3:00 a.m. on I-35 near Hill Road. Preliminary investigation suggests Ousaklidis was driving a Hyundai Sonata south on the interstate at alleged high speeds when reports indicate he started to drift slowly off the road. It crashed into a light pole, then side-skidded and overturned. It rolled over through the southbound service road and crashed into a fence line.

Ousaklidis was ejected in the rollover and suffered fatal injuries.

Investigators report the victim's sister arrived at the scene and told them he had been drinking alcohol heavily before the accident. Blood samples were collected for testing.

Commentary on Konstantinos Ousaklidis Accident in Bell County

Some may not see why police would find out whether the crash victim was intoxicated since he's beyond legal consequences, but it's still an important detail to learn. Not only do his loved ones deserve to know as many facts as possible, but if alcohol is confirmed then the victim may not be the only one responsible for his loss of life under dram shop law.

Dram shop law basically prohibits any alcohol-selling vendor (bars, clubs, restaurants, stores, etc) from providing further drinks to an obviously intoxicated customer. If they do and that person causes or suffers injuries while under the influence, the business that over-served him may be obligated to make whatever amends it can to his family.

Not every DWI crash involves a dram shop violation, but it's important to properly investigate the drinks' source in case responsibility extends beyond the victim. Too many bars and other alcohol vendors get away with over-service because people don't always know they can be held accountable for it.

To be clear, though, alcohol is only a theory unless tests say otherwise. It's just vital to investigate the matter thoroughly and find the whole story. No matter what caused this tragic accident, the victim's loved ones have a right to every answer they can get.
