Commentary on Mack McKinley Motorcycle Accident in Harris County
There isn't much information about what happened here, so one can only wonder what investigations will uncover. Late in the evening, one particular concern is the possibility of drunk driving--especially in Harris County. If that's what happened here, that could be a lot more complex than just a driver facing charges. There could even be a local business responsible for this man's death.
That's due to dram shop law, which says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. I try to bring this up when possible because it can be of significant help to victims and families, not to mention the community those businesses would otherwise continue putting in danger. But authorities aren't always thorough, meaning important information can slip through the cracks. Would further investigations here be necessary to ensure there is justice for this terrible event?
