Commentary on Possible DWI Accident at Main Plaza in New Braunfels

Teen Injured in Possible DWI Accident at Main Plaza in New Braunfels, TX

I'm not here to cast any judgments on some kid that may or may not have made a mistake. But when it comes to minors driving while intoxicated, there's the very real issue of why they were intoxicated. Sometimes, evidence shows someone provided them with alcohol. That could be an acquaintance or family member, but there have even been deadly accidents linked to businesses selling alcohol to kids. This is significant for two main reasons. One is that those who provide alcohol to minors can be liable for the resulting damages. Secondly, they can also face serious criminal consequences. Are investigators being thorough here to ensure the right people are being held accountable?
