Commentary on Thomas Anderson Car Accident on Highway 151 in San Antonio
With an early morning crash like this, folks are no doubt wondering if alcohol played a role. It seems police certainly are of that mind. That is incredibly common, though folks shouldn't be so quick to jump to conclusions. There could be unusual circumstances authorities have yet to consider.
Alcohol is certainly common at 2:00 a.m., and I wouldn't suggest ignoring it. That's especially true if a local alcohol provider over-served the driver, since they could be liable for contributing to the crash. But things like mechanical issues, medical conditions, tire blowouts, road hazards, and other factors also cause wrecks like this. Without the right attention, something could easily slip through the cracks. That's why it's important folks educate themselves on these things to ensure they know the proper steps to take after a serious crash like this.
