Priya Kundu Injured in Crash with Alleged DWI Driver in Sugar Land, TX

Sugar Land, TX — October 1, 2022, 45-year-old Priya Kundu was injured in a crash with a suspected drunk driver on State Highway 6 in Sugar Land.

Authorities say the incident happened around 1:00 a.m. on Texas 6 at Dulles Avenue. Preliminary investigation suggests Kundu was a passenger in a Lexus sedan as it turned left with a protected arrow from the eastbound highway onto northbound Dulles. As the Lexus turned a westbound Ford F-150 pickup reportedly ran a red light and crashed into its front passenger side.

Kundu suffered serious injuries in the crash; the Lexus driver received possible injuries. The Ford driver was unhurt.

Investigators suspected the Ford driver was intoxicated and collected blood samples for testing.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Priya Kundu Accident in Sugar Land

If blood tests confirm that the allegedly at-fault driver was impaired, that may mean he'll face some legal consequences for his poor choices that evening. Drunk driving is a serious problem on Texas roads and it's only right that the people who do so face repercussions, but before anyone decides that's the end of the matter there may be other things to consider too.

For instance, after DWI crashes it's important to find out where the suspect's alcohol actually came from. Why? Because a local bar or other alcohol vendor might have illegally over-served them. If so, that business might be liable for the crash victims' injuries under dram shop law. It would then have a duty to help them get back on their feet.

Not every DWI wreck starts with a bar's negligence, but the source of the alcohol is an important (but often overlooked) detail for investigators to discover. Unfortunately, police aren't always thorough enough to find that out and thus many accident victims are robbed of a source of help as they recover. If an accident like this isn't followed up on by experienced independent investigators, there's no telling if the whole truth will be uncovered or if the victims will get the assistance they deserve.
