6 Hurt in Dallas, TX, Drunk Driving Accident at Ramona & Hudspeth

Dallas, TX -- February 6, 2017, at least six people were injured due to an accident where an alleged drunk driver caused a wreck at Ramona and Hudspeth.

Dallas Police officials were called to the scene at around 9:45 p.m. where two vehicles had crashed at the intersection.

According to their preliminary investigations, a Ford Crown Victoria ran a stop sign at the intersection, causing it to enter the path an oncoming Lexus. As a result, the two vehicles crashed in the crossing.

From the Crown Vic, three people, one of which was a minor, were transported to a hospital for treatment. A man and his two grandchildren from the LExus were also taken to a nearby hospital. Reports did not specify the condition of any involved.

Following the accident, police determined that the driver of the Crown Vic was intoxicated at the time of the crashed. That person currently faces two counts of intoxication assault.

The incident remains under investigation at this time.

The reports I've seen regarding this accident are indicating that alcohol was a contributing factor to the accident. If this is the case, then it's possible that the drunk driver was drinking at a bar or other businesses before the accident. That would mean that the injured parties could have a claim under dram shop law.

Liquor liability laws in Texas basically allow for victims of intoxication related accidents to sue negligent businesses for over-serving alcohol to the person who caused the injuries. Our firm has handled more dram shop cases than almost any other firm in the state, and it's a subject that many people ask us about.
