Commentary on Pedestrian Accident on North Moss in West Odessa

When it comes to situations like this, folks tend to just assume it all comes down to who had the right-of-way. As important as that is, there can be extenuating circumstances to consider.

West Odessa, TX Pedestrian Accident Injures 2 on N Moss at W 26th

Late at night, for example, alcohol is a concern--both for the drivers and the pedestrians. This is because Texas dram shop law says bars and other venues can be liable if they illegally over-serve someone, and that leads to them hurting themselves or someone else. Could it be something like that happened here?

Otherwise, even without alcohol, it's important to consider how the collision could have been avoided. There are times when a pedestrian is maybe in a place they shouldn't be, but they're clearly visible and reasonably avoidable. If a driver fails to avoid someone in that environment, it could be because they were doing something wrong. Are these things that authorities are looking into, or will there need to be more thorough independent investigations?
