Commentary on Toddler Hit-and-run Accident on Ella Boulevard in Harris County

With an accident like this, it's always encouraging to see someone getting their day in court to answer for what happened. But it's important folks don't just assume that's all there is to the story. Hit-and-runs can be rather complex depending on why the driver left the scene.

For example, alcohol is a common factor in these accidents. That can create a complex legal scenario if a local bar illegally over-served the driver. That bar would then be liable for their role in the accident under dram shop law.

I'm not saying anything like that happened here, of course, but it's a possibility that should at least get attention. If nothing else, a family deserves every opportunity available to them to get the help they need.
