Commentary on Tim Barrera Wrong-Way Accident in Corpus Christi

If the allegations here prove to be true, it tragically wouldn't be that surprising. Whenever a driver goes the wrong way on a limited access roadway, it's almost always a sign they were intoxicated. Not only that, but it's often a sign that they were significantly intoxicated. Why is that important?

The reason that matters is because that tends to happen after local bars and other venues illegally over-serve someone who was obviously intoxicated. Doing so can make that law-breaking business liable under dram shop law for contributing to the resulting crash. I certainly can't say if that happened here without more thorough investigations, but I'd say a man losing his life warrants every possible step to ensure those responsible are facing the appropriate consequences.
