Garland, TX -- October 28, 2022, George Ghobrial and Bradley Irwin were injured due to an accident which allegedly involved alcohol.

Initial details said that the accident happened at around 11:33 p.m. along First Street at Walnut Street.

Statements said that 31-year-old George Ghobrial was driving a Ford F-150 with 40-year-old Bradley Irwin riding as a passenger. They were westbound on Walnut when they crossed North First. Doing so, a southbound Silverado reportedly disregarded a red light and crashed into Ghobrial's vehicle.

Due to the collision, both Ghobrial and Irwin were said to have incapacitating injuries. The other driver was identified in statements as Jonathan Juarez. Authorities allege he was under the influence of alcohol at the time. No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on George Ghobrial, Bradley Irwin Alleged DWI Accident in Garland

I'm not one to speak on allegations against an individual without knowing all of the facts, and I'm certainly not going to start now. But anytime authorities bring up alcohol, it's important folks understand what that can mean for the victims involved. An allegedly drunk driver may get their day in court, but how does that actually help people left to pickup the pieces following a serious crash? Well, it doesn't usually, which is why it's so important for people to learn about dram shop law.

Put simply, Texas gives people the right to hold alcohol providers accountable when they contribute to their injuries. 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, restaurant, liquor store, or some other establishment, holding them accountable can be a vital source of help for the victims and families, a tool to ensure wrongdoers are held accountable for their actions, and a major wake-up call for those negligent businesses who might otherwise continue putting the community in danger.

So while I can't say exactly what happened here, I can say from experience that details like this shouldn't be taken lightly. There may yet be crucial details investigators need to look into if people are going to get the resolution they deserve.
