Idrees Ali Injured in Single-Vehicle Accident on Legacy Drive in Frisco, TX

Frisco, TX — October 17, 2022, 24-year-old Idrees Ali was seriously injured in a single-vehicle accident on Legacy Drive in Collin County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 1:30 a.m. in an apartment complex on Legacy Drive near Lakehill Boulevard. Preliminary investigation suggests Ali was driving a Kia Optima on a private drive in the complex when he allegedly failed to control his speed and course. The Kia ran off the road and hit several landscape bushes, then crashed into the wall of two nearby apartments.

Ali suffered serious injuries in the crash. Police suspected he was under the influence of alcohol and collected blood samples for testing.

Commentary on Idrees Ali Accident in Frisco

Police suspect alcohol was a factor in this crash. If blood tests confirm that, the injured man may face some legal consequences for his choices. However, there may be more to the story than simply punishing a drunk driver; for instance, what if the business that sold him alcohol is party responsible for what happened?

Under Texas dram shop law, alcohol vendors like bars, restaurants, clubs, and stores can't sell or serve more alcohol to obviously intoxicated customers. If they do they may be considered liable for any damage those customers do--even to themselves--while under the influence.

To be clear, intoxication is just a theory unless proven. There's a lot of reasons someone could lose control of their vehicle, and all of them must be carefully considered and nothing taken for granted. Even though I'm explaining a few things about dram shop law, I don't know for sure they apply. I only know from decades of experience that it could have helped many people who never knew about it at all, so I talk about it after accidents where it might be a concern. If a local business broke the law and someone suffered as a result, that business should be held accountable and make what amends it can.
