San Antonio, TX -- A crash in the area of San Antnio, TX left three unidentified victims with injuries Sunday, March 12, 2017.

At this time, we can only speculate about the cause of this accident. Considering the details of the report, it isn't unreasonable to see how alcohol may have been a factor. One clue-in is the fact that police believe a wrong-way driver was involved. Most reasonable people don't find themselves driving the wrong way down the highway. The other fact that backs the alcohol theory is that the accident happened around 2 a.m. As you may know, this is right around the time bars have announced last call and shown their patrons the exit.

Accidents like these are the problem lawmakers in Austin attempted to solve when they adopted what is known as dram shop law. This law states that bars that illegally over-serve patrons may be held liable if those individuals go on to harm themselves or others due to their intoxication. Dram shop law also serves as a financial incentive for bars that are about to pour that one shot too many to maybe think twice. Unfortunately, some bars need a reminder that service of alcohol is a privilege, not a right.

When someone suffers an injury because of a bar's unlawful alcohol service, it stands to reason that the bar should play a role in helping the individual put their life back together. It would be truly perverse if we were to accept that 3 people have to figure out how to pay massive medical bills, while the bar that contributed to their accident counts the money it made by breaking the law.
