Karla Biagas, One Other Injured in Crash on FM 1765 in La Marque, TX

La Marque, TX — August 10, 2022, 30-year-old Karla Biagas and another person were injured in a traffic accident on Farm to Market Road 1765 in La Marque.

Authorities say the incident happened around 7:40 p.m. on FM 1765 at Amburn Road. Preliminary investigation suggests Biagas was driving a Chevrolet Silverado pickup wests on the roadway at alleged high speeds. Investigators believe she disregarded a red light at the Amburn intersection, then crashed into the front-left quarter of a southbound GMC Sierra pickup in the crossroads.

Biagas and the GMC driver both received serious injuries in the collision; both were taken to area hospitals for treatment.

Investigators noted an odor of alcohol emitting from Biagas at the scene. Blood samples were collected for testing as part of a DWI investigation.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Karla Biagas Accident in La Marque

If blood tests confirm that one of the drivers in this wreck was impaired as police suspect, that may mean she'll face some legal consequences for her choices that even. While it's important that people who choose to endanger themselves and others that way face some repercussions, her potential fate in court isn't for me to speculate. Instead, I think it's a more worthwhile thing to look at ways to help her and the other injured person get back on their feet.

Any DWI crash victim, even the suspected drunk driver, should have whatever assistance they can get with the long road to recovery. Texas dram shop law might be one way to get that assistance.

Under dram shop law, licensed alcohol providers who over-serve an obviously intoxicated person may be liable for injuries she causes--even to herself--while under the influence. A dram shop claim against a reckless bar lets DWI accident victims seek much-needed help and makes sure the offending business faces consequences for endangering its customers and the public.

Unfortunately, dram violations don't get much attention during police investigations. If a bar may have over-served the victim then it's better to seek proof of that independently with the right allies' help. Armed with the evidence those experts find, many victims and families have held bad alcohol providers properly accountable for breaking the law and causing harm.
