Commentary on Joe Riojas Single-Vehicle Accident in Dallas

To be rather blunt, I can't help but be a bit skeptical of police saying alcohol was a factor here. The reason for that is simply because I've seen so many reports where police brought up alcohol, and it just turned out to be the officer jumping to conclusions based on their "gut instinct". Is alcohol common in a crash like this? Certainly, and it can even raise serious concerns about a local bar possibly illegally over-serving the victim and needing to be held accountable. But if investigators haven't looked into things like mechanical defects, tire failures, medical conditions, road hazards, or even other drivers that left the scene, how can they say they're getting this man's loved ones the answers they deserve?
