Robert Brown Injured in Single-Vehicle Accident on I-20 Business in Midland County, TX

Midland County, TX — August 13, 2022, 34-year-old Robert Brown was injured in a single-vehicle accident on I-20 Business in Midland County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 2:20 a.m. on BI-20 near Chukar Lane. Preliminary investigation suggests Brown was driving a Chevrolet C20 pickup east on the highway when he lost control and swerved north off the roadway. The pickup passed through the highway's grass median, overturned, and rolled one or more times before it came to rest upside-down between the highway and the north frontage road.

Brown suffered serious injuries in the accident. Investigators believe he may have been intoxicated by alcohol and sought a subpoena for a blood test.

Commentary on Robert Brown Accident in Midland County

While drunk driving endangers people and deserves serious repercussions, any accident victim--even a suspected DWI driver--should have whatever assistance they can get with the long road to recovery. Moreover, the repercussions I mentioned may need to extend beyond just the driver himself. With that in mind, it's important to talk about Texas dram shop law.

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

Unfortunately, dram violations don't get much attention from police. If a bar may have over-served the victim before the accident that sent him to the hospital, proving it may take independent efforts from trained experts. With the evidence they find, many victims and families have held bad alcohol providers accountable for the damage they helped cause.
