Commentary on Patricia Gonzalez Accident in Mission

If evidence shows that alcohol was a factor here as police mentioned, that may warrant some serious consequences. However, those may not actually fall exclusively on the person who allegedly drove under the influence. Something folks don't often know about until they talk to an experienced professional is dram shop law.

Basically, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person may be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. If it turns out a business such as a bar contributed to the accident, ensuring they too face appropriate consequences for their recklessness should be a priority. Whether or not something like that happened here will likely require more thorough investigations, and until those are completed it's best not to jump to any conclusions about what might be found.
