Wanda Henley, Robert Henley, 1 Injured in Car Accident in Panola County, TX

Panola County, TX -- December 23, 2022, Wanda Henley, Robert Henley, and another were injured in an accident allegedly involving alcohol.

Details surrounding the crash made public by authorities said that the incident happened at around 6:12 p.m. along Highway 149. Investigators said that 70-year-old Wanda Henley and 69-year-old Robert Henley were in a Nissan Sentra traveling westbound along the highway. It appears that a Chevy Cruze was on the wrong side of the road where it crashed into the Sentra as well as a dodge Ram.

Due to the crash, Wanda Henley and the driver of the Cruze had incapacitating injuries. Robert Henley's injuries were said to be non-incapacitating. Latest information suggests the Chevy driver was under the influence of alcohol. These details are still under investigation.

If it's true that alcohol led to the crash, go ahead and toss it onto the pile of all the other alcohol related accidents plaguing Texas roads. It's a big problem, and it's important folks are aware of what tools are available to fight against the seemingly endless stream of intoxicated drivers getting people hurt and killed.

One possible step I've taken many times is to avoid treating serious drunk driving wrecks like just another one on the proverbial pile. Making sure the specifics come to light and make it into the families' hands is crucial, especially in situations where that leads to a local alcohol provider like a bar or restaurant being held accountable. There as much a part of the drunk driving problem as the drunk drivers are, considering all of the businesses that break the law and over-serve people.

Is that something that happened here? Are steps being taken to actually dig into the details, or was this a situation where authorities just filed charges and moved on without ensuring the victims had the whole story? As challenging as it may be, the answer to the struggle for making our roads safer is not to take the easy road; it's to take every step possible to make things right.
