Commentary on Alleged DWI Accident on US 287A in Amarillo

If it's true that alcohol was a factor here, it's important to find out if authorities looked into where that alcohol came from. That may not seem significant, but it can have crucial implications for the victims and families who are in need of as much help as they can get. More specifically, depending on certain circumstances, there could be a local alcohol provider liable for their role in this crash.

This is called Texas 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. Not only is it important that victims get the help they need, it's important there are consequences for the harm caused to those victims. While authorities tend to go after the drivers, it usually requires more thorough independent investigations to seek out any accomplices.
