Robert Donald Gardner Injured in Alleged Intoxicated Driver Accident in Harris County, TX
Harris County, TX — October 31, 2023, Robert Donald Gardner was injured due to an alleged intoxicated driver accident in Harris County.
County officials gave few details surrounding the accident. Their statements say that Robert Donald Gardner sustained injuries in a motor vehicle crash, and a driver's alleged intoxicated driving was the proximate cause of those injuries. There appears to be a pending charge for intoxication assault in regards to Gardner's injuries.
One thing these reports do not mention is whether or not alcohol or drugs are the alleged intoxicants. That likely wouldn't make much of a difference in these pending charges, but they could absolutely make a difference if there's an outside party who also contributed to the victim's injuries.
For example, Harris County officials just so happen to be among the more motivated authorities after drunk driving wrecks when it comes to finding out where that alcohol came from and whether or not the provider broke the law and contributed to the wreck. Depending on what exactly happened here, these allegations may only be the first among several more to come.
