Natasha Tremblay Injured in Car Accident on Guadalupe St in Austin, TX

Austin, TX — January 15, 2023, 25-year-old Natasha Tremblay was seriously injured in a car accident on Guadalupe Street in Austin.

Authorities say the incident happened around 2:25 a.m. on the 4600 block of Guadalupe at West 46th Street. Preliminary investigation suggests Tremblay was an Uber passenger in a Kia Rio, heading north on the roadway, when a southbound Chevy Malibu crashed into the Kia head-on at 46th Street. After the impact the Kia spun onto the southwest corner of the intersection, while the Chevy continued south and hit another vehicle.

Tremblay suffered incapacitating injuries in the crash and was taken to a hospital. No other injuries were reported.

Police arrested the Chevy driver on a potential Intoxication Assault charge and collected blood samples for testing.

No further information is currently available.

If blood tests confirm that the Chevy driver was impaired as officers suspected, he may have some harsh consequences coming for his poor choices that night. Drunk driving is a serious problem on Texas roads and it's only right that the people who do so are punished for putting people in danger. However, before anyone decides that's the end of the matter there may be more to consider.

For instance, after alcohol-related crashes it's important to find out where the alcohol actually came from. Why? Because a local bar or other alcohol vendor might have illegally over-served the suspect before the crash. If so then Texas dram shop law might hold that business liable for the injuries he caused on Guadalupe Street.

To be clear, I wasn't there and I don't know any more than public reports say. I'm not accusing any specific Austin business of misconduct, but I think many would agree that everyone who played a role in that young woman's serious injuries should be held accountable. At the very least the source of the alcohol seems important to find out in case a local bar needs a harsh lesson about obeying the law and not endangering its community. If the same efforts might also provide a way to help an injured crash victim, that's all the more reason to look into it.
