Commentary on Car Accident on Allen Parkway in Houston

To be clear, I don't have any information besides what's available to the public right now. But from experience, I know it will be important to look into alcohol as a possible factor here. That's because wrong-way crashes almost always involve intoxicated drivers.

It takes a lot for someone not to realize they're on the wrong side of the road--especially when that road is clearly divided. Not only could there have been an intoxicated driver here, but it's possible a negligent alcohol provider also contributed to the crash by over-serving that driver.

Put simply, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Bars, liquor stores, restaurants, gas stations--there are plenty of businesses out there that need to be held accountable for contributing to accidents like this. Houston is pretty far from the exception. That's why it's important for victims and families to know about these tools so they can get the answers and the help they deserve.
