Officer Injured in Possible DWI Accident on West Montgomery in Houston, TX

Houston, TX -- December 5, 2022, an officer was injured due to an accident where a possibly intoxicated driver hit their cruiser.

Investigators said the incident occurred late Monday in the area of West Montgomery and Beall. It appears that a Houston Police officer was in a vehicle along the side of the road controling traffic with flashing lights active. A Toyota Tacoma crashed into the cruiser, then apparently left the scene. Authorities eventually apprehended that driver.

The officer was said to be in stable condition following transportation to a hospital. The Toyota driver reportedly had open alcohol containers in the vehicle and may face DWI charges. No further information is available at this time.

Folks in Houston are no doubt tired of seeing headline after headline about intoxicated drivers, and it appears this may be yet another one. It's important people know the potential avenues to fight against this scourge of drunk drivers as well as potentially helping the victims and families affected. For that reason, dram shop law is something I address whenever possible.

Officer Injured in Possible DWI Accident on West Montgomery in Houston, TX

Put simply, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Not only can it provide assistance for those affected by these wrecks, it can hold negligent businesses accountable and get them to clean up their act before they cause further harm to the community. This is why I do what I can to help people understand their rights and the possible steps they can taken to make things right.
