Dallas, TX -- July 23, 2022, Emmett Hudson III and one other person were injured as the result of a multi-car accident.

Investigators were called to the intersection of Masters Drive and Pebble Valley Lane at around 12:35 p.m.

It appears that 46-year-old Emmett Hudson III was on a Harley-Davidson traveling southbound on Masters Drive. Ahead, police said that a pickup failed to yield at Pebble Valley, crashing with Hudson's motorcycle and another southbound vehicle.

Due to the collision, Hudson was said to have incapacitating injuries. A passenger in the pickup may have been injured as well. Authorities allege that the pickup driver was under the influence of drugs and alcohol at the time. Charges are not confirmed at this time.

Commentary on Emmett Hudson III Car Accident Dallas

It's obviously a big red flag to see intoxicated driving involved in a serious crash like this. Perhaps all that will lead to is a driver getting a court date to answer for their actions. However, they're not always the only ones to hold responsible. Depending on the circumstances, there could also be a local drinking establishment liable for contributing to the victim's injuries. This is due to dram shop law.

Essentially, 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, and even gas stations have these rules to follow. People would be disgusted to see just how many businesses don't even hesitate to put the public and even their own customers in danger.

That's why these crashes present an opportunity for me to better inform the public. I can't say if dram shop specifically applies here without more thorough investigations. Simply knowing about it, though, can be a crucial first step toward people ensuring they're getting every opportunity for assistance Texas law gives them the right to pursue. Are those steps being taken here?
