Commentary on Car, House Accident on North 26th in Waco
This early in the morning, a serious accident like this always raises concerns that alcohol may have been a factor. That's obviously important to consider, especially since it's possible a local bar illegally over-served the driver and is liable under dram shop law. That said,I consistently talk on this blog about the importance of considering other possibilities--even unlikely ones. I see no particular reason right now why this incident would be an exception. Learning about these other possibilities could prove crucial here.
