17-year-old Injured in Car Accident on Goliad Street in Amarillo, TX

Amarillo, TX -- December 16, 2022, a 17-year-old was injured following an accident where the vehicle he was in crashed off Goliad Street.

Initial details about the crash said that it happened at around 1:46 a.m. along Goliad Street off Bushland Boulevard.

Public information from authorities said that a 16-year-old was driving a Mazda CX-3 which was eastbound on Bushland. The vehicle somehow ran off-road where it went up a driveway and crashed into multiple parked vehicles.

Due to the collision, the 17-year-old boy riding passenger had injuries said to be incapacitating. The driver was said to be uninjured.

While currently unconfirmed, authorities seem to believe alcohol was a factor here. Is that true? If so, there could be some serious consequences here. And I don't mean that to single out any of the kids involved here, even if they may have made a mistake. On the contrary, a drunk driving accident involving minors usually involves an adult that gave them alcohol. Is that what happened here?

According to Texas law, adults who provide alcohol to minors can be responsible when that alcohol contributes to people getting hurt. That's true enough for negligent parents, acquaintances, neighbors, etc., but it's even more concerning to think there could be a local business serving alcohol to teens. It wouldn't be the first time, and a community should always strive to try to make it the last time.
