Wally Macias Killed, DShawn Foster, 1 Injured in Car Accident in Dallas, TX

UPDATE (January 12, 2023): Public information from authorities identifies the people involved in the accident. They say that 37-year-old Wally Macias was the one who succumbed to fatal injuries. Macias was a passenger in a Kia Rio driven by 34-year-old DShawn Foster. They were eastbound on the interstate when they crashed into a vehicle which apparently was stopped with its lights off. Police allege that driver was under the influence of alcohol at the time. Right now, additional details are still under investigation.

With these new details, if they are accurate, then hopefully authorities are continuing their investigations beyond simply whether or not the driver was intoxicated. That's obviously important, but it's often just one piece of the larger picture. It would shock people to see how often something like this ends up involving accomplices that police overlook.

Simply put, a lot of accidents involving alcohol also involve negligent alcohol providers. This is important because it's illegal in Texas for bars and other establishments to over-serve someone who is obviously intoxicated. If they do so anyway, and that leads to people getting hurt, those businesses can be held responsible through dram shop law for the hardships they contributed to. It will be vital going forward to gather evidence to ensure all parties responsible for this crash face the appropriate consequences.

Dallas, TX -- December 24, 2022, one person was killed and one person was injured due to an accident which happened along I-20.

There are still few details available about the deadly wreck, which apparently occurred at around 4:00 a.m. in the Oak Cliff area. Three vehicles were said to be involved, and victims were said to be in one of those vehicles. One person died while at least one other was taken to a hospital. It's unclear if anyone else was hurt, and the cause of the crash remains under investigation. Hopefully that means experienced professionals are handling things.

I have enough concerns that car wrecks aren't going to get proper attention from authorities without them happening during the holidays. Could it be something important is slipping through the cracks? Are investigators experienced enough to consider both common factors like alcohol as well as uncommon factors like mechanical defects? Likely or not, these factors warrant attention if victims and families are going to get the answers they deserve.

Someone losing their life only makes those steps even more crucial, which is why I have to be skeptical that anything less than an independent accident reconstruction from professionals simply won't be enough.
