If the allegations here are true, then I can't overstate the importance of finding out where that driver got their alcohol. Why is that?

In Texas, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. If some local bar or restaurant served this driver to the point he nearly killed someone, they, too, should face the appropriate consequences for their actions.

It so happens dram shop is a vital tool to accomplish this while also giving victims an opportunity to get the help they need. It remains to be seen if authorities ever looked into those possibilities here.
