Lottie Jefferson, Julie Wallace Injured in Car Accident in Luling, TX

Luling, TX -- September 10, 2022, Lottie Jefferson and Julie Wallace were injured following an accident where their cars crashed.

Investigations said that the incident happened at around 5:00 p.m. along Pierce Street at the intersection of Walnut Avenue.

Officials indicated that 56-year-old Lottie Jefferson was in a Chevy 1500 traveling eastbound on Pierce. While in the inside lane at Walnut, police say an oncoming vehicle swerved to avoid hitting a southbound driver, then crashed into Jefferson's vehicle.

As a result of the crash, Jefferson was said to have incapacitating injuries. Police say the other driver, 55-year-old Julie Wallace, had non-incapacitating injuries. Alcohol was suggested as a possible factor in the crash, but this has yet to be confirmed.

Commentary on Lottie Jefferson, Julie Wallace Car Accident in Luling

With a crash like this, it's easy for folks to just assume police have everything under wraps. Saying alcohol is involved means it's all open-and-shut, right? That's not always true. For one, it's possible alcohol had nothing to do with this crash. It wouldn't be the first time authorities missed the mark. Secondly, however, even if alcohol was a factor, police don't always have the experience needed to really get the whole story.

It's possible after drunk driving wrecks that evidence shows a local establishment contributed to the crash. This is why dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Without considering these possibilities, a business can easily get away with its harmful behavior, and a family can miss out on vital help they deserve.

So while I certainly can't say what did or didn't happen here, it's unlikely anyone else can unless there's been a proper and thorough independent investigation.
