Javier Vazquez, Teen Injured in Car Accident in Pasadena, TX

Pasadena, TX -- October 22, 2022, Javier Vazquez and two others were injured after an accident where multiple vehicles crashed at Richey St.

Investigators said that the accident happened at around 9:00 p.m. at the intersection of Pasadena Feeder Road and Richey Street.

Javier Vasquez was a passenger in a Chevy Impala traveling southbound on Richey Street. At the feeder road, police believe that an eastbound GMC Yukon failed to regard a stop sign. The two vehicles crashed as a result.

Due to the crash, a 17-year-old girl in Vazquez's vehicle had incapacitating injuries. Another teenager had non-incapacitating injuries. Vazquez and the driver of the Chevy had unspecified injuries. Police said the GMC driver may have been drinking, but this wasn't confirmed.

Commentary on Javier Vazquez Car Accident in Pasadena

If investigations show that alcohol led to this crash, then there could be a lot more to this story the victims and families involved deserve to know about. I'll give an example of why that is.

Javier Vazquez, Teen Injured in Car Accident in Pasadena, TX

A while back, a family came to me after a drunk driver hit their car, seriously injuring their young son. As we retraced the drunk driver's steps that night, we found that he'd been illegally over-served by a local bar. In Texas, that can make the bar liable under dram shop law for over-serving someone whose intoxication then causes harm to others.

Not only did this bring to light a dangerous business putting the community in danger, but it also provided a crucial opportunity for a family to get some much needed help. I can't say if anything like that happened here, but that's why folks should always ensure the right people are asking the right questions after a serious crash like this.
