Commentary on Savannah Zamora Alleged DWI Accident in San Antonio
Just to be clear, it's important to take early details like this with a grain of salt because the authorities may not have been as thorough as one would hope. I've seen situations like this where alcohol was not at all a factor, and police were simply off the mark. If it was a factor, of course, that would warrant even more thorough investigations into whether or not a local business is liable under dram shop law for over-serving the driver. After all, any path to get the victims the help they need is one worth considering. Simply waiting around for the authorities here may not be good enough to get those answers.
