Commentary on Tonya Gray, Anthony Logan Car Accident in Webster
It's concerning anytime alcohol comes up after a crash like this. Folks no doubt want to see consequences, but those consequences can be more complex than folks realize. It's not just about the allegedly drunk drivers. It's also about any complicit alcohol providers who may have over-served them.
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. Bars, liquor stores, gas stations--these businesses can simply continue putting lives at risk until they face consequences significant enough to make them clean up their act. Dram shop can be the tool to do that while also getting victims and families the help they need.
While I can't say what all happened here, any serious injuries warrant consideration into possible paths to get them help. Are those avenues being explored here?
