James Conrique Injured in Single-Vehicle Accident on FM 51 in Parker County, TX

Parker County, TX — August 21, 2022, 23-year-old James Conrique was seriously injured in a single-vehicle accident on FM 51 in Parker County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 3:55 a.m. on FM 51 near Baggett Road. Preliminary investigation suggests Conrique was driving a Hyundai Elantra south on the roadway when he entered a curve at alleged unsafe speeds. The car ran off the right side of the road, then hit a driveway and rolled over.

Conrique suffered serious injuries in the crash. Investigators said he admitted to drinking alcohol and had an open container of it in the car.

Commentary on James Conrique Accident in Parker County

If clear evidence confirms that the driver was impaired (as his alleged confession would suggest), that may mean he'll face some legal consequences for his choices that night. However, before anyone decides that's the end of the matter there may be other issues to address--like whether the victim is really the only one to hold accountable for the crash and his injuries.

What do I mean? Well, if a local bar or other alcohol vendor illegally over-served the victim before his crash then it might be liable for his injuries under dram shop law and would then have a duty to help him get back on his feet.

The possibility of a dram shop violation is just one reason of many why full investigations are so important. I can't say whether a local business had a hand in this wreck, but since the driver reportedly admitted to drinking it seems like a good idea to find out where and how much in case that open container wasn't his only one of the night.

Unfortunately, once they catch a drunk driver police rarely look beyond him to where his drinks came from. Dram shop violations are often better handled by independent professionals working on a victim's behalf. Armed with clear evidence of over-service, many people hurt by law-breaking businesses have held them responsible.
