It's obviously serious whenever authorities bring up alcohol. It should be made clear, though, that they sometimes do this just out of standard procedure. The evidence could show alcohol had nothing to do with this wreck. If it was a factor, however, there may need to be more thorough investigations into where that alcohol came from. Those establishments can be liable if they illegally over-served whoever was responsible for the crash. This is called dram shop law, and it's a vital tool for people to use when looking for help. Depending on what caused this crash, it may yet prove useful here, as well.
