It obviously stands out when authorities bring up the possibility of alcohol. If it turns out that is what happened here, hopefully professionals are also going to look into where that alcohol came from. Should evidence show that a local bar illegally over-served the allegedly drunk driver, then they could be liable for the victims' injuries due to dram shop law. That said, authorities may find alcohol was not actually a factor here, which means it's important to consider other possibilities, as well. To that end, it may be helpful for folks to learn why they can't always rely solely on police investigations in these situations.
