James Glenn, Erica Glenn, Children Injured in Auto Accident on New Sulphur Springs Rd in San Antonio, TX

San Antonio, TX — January 27, 2023, James and Erica Glenn and their daughters were injured in a crash with a suspected drunk driver on New Sulphur Springs Road.

Authorities say the incident happened around 5:45 p.m. on New Sulphur Springs at Jasper Hollow. Preliminary investigation suggests a Chevy Silverado was traveling east on the roadway, allegedly at high speeds, when the driver crossed over the center line for unconfirmed reasons and crashed into the victims' westbound Honda Accord at the Jasper Hollow intersection. After the impact both units overturned and the pickup caught fire, but its driver was extricated before getting burned.

Honda driver James Glenn was seriously injured in the collision. Passenger Erica Glenn and two girls in the Honda aged 11 and 12 reportedly sustained minor injuries; the family was transported to a hospital for evaluation and treatment.

The Chevy driver also reportedly received minor injuries. Investigators believed alcohol may have been a factor in the accident.

No further information is currently available.

If blood test results confirm police suspicions about alcohol, their suspect may have serious consequences coming for his choices that day—and rightly so. Some may feel that whatever happens during his day in court is more or less the final step in this matter, but I believe everyone responsible for the crash and that family's injuries should be held accountable for their part. That's why it's important to know about Texas dram shop law.

Under dram shop law a licensed alcohol vendor (bar, club, restaurant, store, etc) that sells or serves drinks to an obviously intoxicated customer may be liable for damage that customer causes while under the influence. In other words, a drunk driver may not be the only one legally responsible for hurting someone; the place that got him drunk may also be liable for its part in what happened.

Most businesses follow the rules and not every DWI crash involves a dram violation. However, it seems to me that the alcohol's source is at least important detail to find out on principle. If a local bar is ignoring the law in favor of bigger tabs and endangering the public in the process, that's obviously something that must be stopped. If those efforts could also get some much-needed help for a family injured through no fault of their own, that's all the more reason to take the necessary steps.
