Commentary on Sonia Mason Accident in Midland

Investigators believed the victim of this crash was under the influence of alcohol and drew some blood for testing. That might be enough for some to consider intoxication the cause of the crash, but it's important to remember that suspicion isn't the same as confirmed fact.

Unless clear evidence says the driver was drunk, it's important to keep an open mind and consider whether anything else might have caused her crash. Could something have malfunctioned in her car? Did it blow a tire and swerve off-course? Was the road wet or hazardous? Did the victim have a medical emergency that took her control away? That's just a handful of the other possible factors that should receive attention in the name of a full investigation.

Even if blood tests show alcohol was a factor, there might be other issues to investigate. Texas dram shop law says that an alcohol-serving business which over-serves its customers may be liable for any damage they cause--even to themselves. Not every DWI crash starts with a dram violation, but the source of the drinks is an important detail to learn in case a local business needs to learn a lesson--and to help the woman injured as a result of that negligence.

All I'm saying is it's important to know all the facts before reaching any conclusion, and until those facts are in the victim deserves the benefit of the doubt. Will police learn the whole story here, and will that story lead to some help for the injured driver?
