Commentary on Ramiro Aguirre Jr., Daniel Menchaca Car Accident in Alamo
It's obviously serious anytime alcohol is mentioned, but sometimes authorities only bring it up because it's standard procedure. If alcohol was a factor here, then it could mean there's a local alcohol provider responsible for over-serving whoever is responsible for the crash, meaning they could be liable for the victims' injuries. If alcohol wasn't a factor, then there could be countless other factors, common or otherwise, to look into. My concern is if authorities are actually considering all of these possibilities. They don't always go much further than their standard procedure, which often means getting people the help they need requires more thorough independent investigations. Are those steps necessary here?
