Gary McClung, Asu McClung Injured in Alleged Drunk Driver Accident in Kerr County, TX

Kerr County, TX -- January 28, 2023, Gary McClung and Asu McClung were injured after an accident involving an allegedly drunk driver.

Officials said that the accident took place at the intersection of Highway 27 and Schladoer Lane at around 4:23 p.m.

It appears that 65-year-old Gary McClung and 63-year-old Asu McClung were in a Toyota Highlander traveling westbound on the highway. From oncoming lanes, police say a Toyota Tundra failed to yield while making a left turn, resulting in a collision.

Gary and Asu McClung were both injured, with the latter said to have sustained incapacitating injuries. The driver of the Tundra was believed to have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash. Possible charges cannot be confirmed at this time.

If the allegations of drunk driving are true, then it's very likely steps are being taken to ensure there are appropriate consequences for that. Authorities take drunk driving pretty seriously. I just wish they were equally serious when it came to others that often contribute to crashes like this only to get off scot-free. While a lot of people may not know this, the establishments that serve drunk drivers can also face consequences after crashes like this one.

Put simply, it's illegal in Texas to over-serve someone who is obviously intoxicated. If a business does so, they could face administrative fines or penalties (suspended license, for example). Individual employees and managers sometimes even face criminal charges themselves. Those businesses can also be liable under dram shop law for any injuries caused by that person they illegally served.

I know from confronting more negligent businesses than just about any other firm in the state that ensuring there are consequences is a step toward making a community safer. I can't recall a time a business felt the sting of accountability under Texas liquor laws that continued their negligent behavior. Whether all of this was just a single reckless driver or multiple parties in need of a wake up call, my hope is authorities are getting the victims and their loved ones more answers than these preliminary details give.
