Commentary on Benjamin Kitchens Accident in Lubbock

When a crash like this one happens late at night in a college town like Lubbock, many folks are probably ready to point fingers at impairment as a likely factor (even though the victim isn't 21 yet). I can't say that's impossible; alcohol is behind a great many crashes with details like this one, and if investigators find proof it played a part here then a local business may be on the hook for the victim's injuries due to dram shop law.

HOWEVER, just because alcohol is a possibility doesn't mean it can be taken for granted. There are many other factors, both common and less so, that could just as easily have contributed to or even caused this crash. That's why it's important to investigate carefully and ensure no critical details slip through the cracks.
