It's too early into the investigation to determine exactly what occurred here. But, considering the fact pattern provided by the report, would it be unreasonable to see where alcohol may have been involved?
It's 2:30 a.m., on Saturday night, in the state of Texas--a state gaining an unfortunate notoriety for being near the top of the list for most drunk driving accidents in the nation.
Not to imply we know for sure a bar was involved, but the 2:30 a.m. time reported by the media sets off alarm bells. As some may know, this is right around the time most bars close up shop, and, unconincidentally, when a great deal of alcohol related crashes occur.
If an investigation shows that alcohol was involved, and further that a bar provided that alcohol, that bar may be held responsible under Texas liquor liability law.
Again, there's nothing to indicate in the early media reports that either a bar or alcohol was involved. As it stands, this is only one possibility that could have led to this deadly crash. We have to await the outcome of a more thorough investigation to determine the cause.
