Five Injured in Alleged DWI Accident on US 290 in Manor, TX

Manor, TX -- September 4, 2022, five people, mostly minors, were injured after an accident allegedly involving an intoxicated driver.

Authorities responded to the area of US Highway 290 and Old Kimbro Road at around 1:41 a.m. It appears that a group of teens, ages 14 to 18, were in a Chevy Silverado traveling northbound on Old Kimbro. At US 290, officials indicate that an eastbound vehicle failed to regard a light, crashing into the Silverado.

Due to the crash, the five teens in the Silverado were injured, three with reportedly incapacitating injuries. No other injuries were mentioned. Investigators say that the other driver was recommended for intoxication assault due to alcohol. This and other factors have yet to be confirmed.

Commentary on Alleged DWI Accident on US 290 in Manor

Anytime alcohol contributes to a crash, as is allegedly the case here, it can create a rather complex situation for the victims and families. While authorities tend to be all over the drunk drivers and seeing they face consequences, there may be an accomplice to all of this the victims and families also deserve to see held accountable: an alcohol provider.

Many drunk driving wrecks involve people who were drinking at a local establishment, such as a bar. If investigations show that a bar illegally over-served someone who was obviously intoxicated, that bar can then be liable under dram shop law for their role in a resulting crash.

Not only can dram shop get folks some much needed help, but it can also help to prevent future incidents by getting an otherwise negligent business to clean up its act. Are those steps being taken here?
