Woman Injured in Alleged Drunk Driver Accident on Bandera Road in Leon Valley, TX

Bexar County, TX — August 27, 2023, a woman was injured following a drunk driver accident at around 2:30 a.m. along Bandera Road.

Investigators released information about the crash, which they indicate happened at the intersection of Bandera Road and Wurzbach Road on the edge of Northwest San Antonio.

According to officials, 58-year-old Eliza Guerra and a passenger, also a 58-year-old woman, were in a Honda Accord going northbound on Bandera. While crossing over Wurzbach, it appears a southbound Chevy Silverado ran a red light, made a left turn, and crashed with Eliza Guerra's vehicle.

Due to the collision, the passenger riding with Eliza Guerra reportedly had incapacitating injuries. There were no other confirmed injuries, police say. It's alleged that the driver of the Chevy was under the influence of alcohol at the time, and a recommended charge for intoxication assault was reported.

At just half an hour after bars close (especially from Saturday night to Sunday morning), it's virtually guaranteed that a driver under the influence of alcohol was coming from a local bar. The reason I bring this up is because authorities recommended a charge for the allegedly drunk driver, but they made no mention on if they're pursuing charges against an alcohol provider.

Folks tend to think that the story ends when the drunk driver is in cuffs. Even past clients of mine were often surprised when my team and I started investigating the provider that served the drunk driver. But when an alcohol provider over-serves someone, and that leads to people getting hurt, they open themselves up to possible charges, liability, fines, license suspensions, and other legal consequences.

So are authorities just not talking about their investigations publicly, or have they not been looking into the possibility there's another party responsible for sending someone to the hospital?
