Michael Alan White Killed in Car Accident in Houston, TX

Houston, TX -- August 7, 2022, Michael Alan White was killed due to an accident where two vehicles collided on the freeway.

Investigators were called to the scene at around 10:25 p.m. along US 59/Southwest Freeway near Fondren Road.

Officials said that 54-year-old Michael White was in a Ford F-150 traveling southbound on the freeway. Somehow, the pickup lost control and crashed with another vehicle, then careened into the median barrier. White was ejected from the pickup and died as a result.

Right now, police say alcohol was a factor in the crash, but this has yet to be confirmed. Additional details are still under investigations.

Commentary on Michael Alan White Car Accident in Houston

It's obviously serious anytime authorities bring up alcohol. Folks should keep in mind, however, that it has yet to be confirmed here. It's still important to consider things like mechanical issues, road hazards, tire blowouts, medical emergencies, etc. but even if alcohol was a factor, that doesn't necessarily make things as open-and-shut as one would think.

A crash involving alcohol can lead to a local business being responsible if they illegally over-served whoever caused the accident. Texas dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Whether that's a bar, liquor store, restaurant, or some other business, harming their customers or causing their customers to harm others is a danger to the community which can't go overlooked. That's why dram shop can be crucial both for the victims and families as well as the community as a whole.

Again, it's not even entirely confirmed if alcohol was even involved here. I simply bring up dram shop because alcohol tends to catch everyone's attention, yet few know what rights the victims and families may have under Texas law. Helping to inform people could be that vital first step to getting those folks the help they deserve.
