In their statements, authorities included that they received information from medical officials showing that Mr. Clark was allegedly over twice the legal blood-alcohol content limit. To be clear, I'm not bringing this up to upset anyone or to tarnish the victim's name. I bring it up because authorities were thorough enough to include allegations of drunk driving but not enough to say whether or not they're looking into the possibility the victim was illegally over-served by a bar.

It's unfortunate how often I see bars and other establishments held accountable for contributing to a deadly accident only because my team and I brought them to the attention of authorities during the course of a wrongful death investigation. That's something authorities should consider after any fatal crash where they believe alcohol to be a factor. There are exceptions, but a lot of departments out there simply see that the allegedly intoxicated driver lost their life, and they consider it case closed. In their haste to move on, though, they often allow local businesses to dodge a bullet while leaving the victims and families to bear the burden on their own.

I can't say what all happened here, since I only have as much information available to me right now as anyone else in the public. Maybe police have been more thorough behind the scenes, but the information I'm seeing right now doesn't answer all the questions that came to my mind as I was reading about this crash. I can only imagine what kind of questions a family would be left with looking at the same information.
