Commentary on Fatal Car Accident on Oklahoma Street in Harlingen

When people see a single-vehicle wreck at 2:00 a.m., their first thought is usually that the driver must have been drunk. Is that likely? Absolutely, and that could warrant investigations into local establishments if evidence shows someone illegally over-served the victim. They could be liable under dram shop law for their role in the accident. With that said, it's important not to ignore other possible factors simply because they're unlikely.

Mechanical defects, tire blowouts, road hazards, medical conditions, other reckless drivers that left the scene--likely or not, these are possibilities worth considering. Without the right experience and tools, though, important details can slip through the cracks. Is this accident getting the attention it deserves?
