Not only is that common with hit-and-runs, but this happened in a popular drinking area early in the morning when alcohol related incidents are common. That means locating the driver may not only bring consequences for them but also an opportunity for the victim and their loved ones to hold a local business accountable if they contributed to the incident, as well.

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. Are proper steps being taken to follow up with witnesses and check nearby surveillance footage for more clues? Doing so could be crucial for getting this person the help they deserve.
