Houston Man Injured in Car Accident on Highway 6 in Arcola, TX

Arcola, TX -- August 6, 2022, a Houston man was injured following an accident where two vehicles crashed on Highway 6.

Initial details indicated that the accident occurred just before 3:00 a.m. along Highway 6 near Linda Street.

Investigators said that a 40-year-old Houston man was in a Polaris Slingshot traveling westbound on the highway. Somehow, a collision occurred with a BMW 5 Series.

That vehicle apparently drove somewhere with better lighting because they weren't sure what they hit. They called for EMS, and they found the Houston man with incapacitating injuries. Right now, alcohol is under investigation as a possible factor.

Commentary on Houston Man Car Accident on Highway 6 in Arcola

It's obviously serious when authorities mention alcohol, though folks don't realize they often bring it up just because it's common. I've had many folks come to me with reports where authorities mentioned alcohol, but evidence later showed alcohol wasn't a factor.

If it was a factor here, though, it's important to find out where the alcohol came from and if a local establishment is liable for over-serving one of the drivers. This is called dram shop law, and it's both a vital tool for holding businesses accountable and for folks to get the help they need. Either way, more thorough investigations may be necessary to get answers here.
