Harris County, TX -- January 22, 2023, Paul Loewenbein was killed due to an accident which allegedly involved an intoxicated driver.

Authorities with the Harris County Sheriff's Department said the incident happened in the area of Hadden Road and East Wallisville Road, which appears to be near Baytown. Initial details said that Paul Edward Loewenbein was in a vehicle traveling along Hadden at around 5:25 p.m. The vehicle ran off-road, then crashed into a ditch.

Loewenbein sustained fatal injuries as a result of the crash. The driver's condition wasn't specified, but authorities indicate that driver faces a charge for intoxication manslaughter due to the crash. The statements don't clarify if the intoxicant was drugs or alcohol, and that's likely going to be an important detail going forward. Anytime someone loses their life, it's important their loved ones know the full story. Accidents involving alcohol can be quite a bit more complex than even authorities may be used to.

This is due to the fact that many such incidents involve negligent alcohol providers. They can be responsible for illegally over-serving drivers, yet unfortunately authorities don't always seek those negligent businesses out. Many times when families have come to me about similar incidents, culpable businesses only faced appropriate consequences because of independent investigations that brought them to the authorities' attention.

Like I said, there's no way to know with current public information if that applies here. But there's a family out there that deserves answers, and it's important they understand that even authorities may not be able to get them all of the answers on their own.
