Kinsel had injuries described as incapacitating following the crash. The other driver was allegedly under the influence of alcohol, and the investigating officer recommended charges for intoxication assault. Details surrounding the crash and those potential charges are currently unavailable.

If it's true this incident involved a drunk driver, then charges would definitely be on the table. Authorities all across the state take drunk drivers pretty seriously, but they don't always go beyond that. But what else could there be other than putting a drunk driver in front of a judge? Well, sometimes the providers that give those drivers alcohol are also in need of a wake up call.

It's illegal in Texas to over-serve obviously intoxicated people, yet crashes like this happen time and time again after someone was recklessly over-served by a local business. Those businesses then open themselves up to consequences according Texas liquor laws, which can include fines, license suspensions, and even liability under dram shop law for the harm caused by their actions.

Could it be something like that happened here? There doesn't appear to be any information at this time to say one way or the other, but it's an important possibility to look into both to ensure people get the help they need and to ensure that all parties responsible for the accident face the appropriate consequences.
