Corpus Christi, TX — November 12, 2017, Tamara Kindred, Aujuni Anderson, and Joshua DelBosque were killed after a possible drunk driving accident.
According to preliminary details released by the Corpus Christi Police Department, the fatal collision happened just before 11:30 p.m. at the intersection of South Padre Island Drive (SPID) and Kostoryz Road.
Police stated that 29-year-old DelBosque was driving a vehicle westbound along SPID at the time. He allegedly ran a red light at the crossing, crashing into a vehicle occupied by 59-year-old Kindred and 16-year-old Anderson.
As a result of the collision, all three victims sustained and succumbed to fatal injuries. No other people were reportedly involved.
At this time, police say alcohol may have been a factor. This has yet to be confirmed as investigations continue.
Map of the Area
Police have yet to confirm that alcohol was involved here, and the last thing I want to do is say that it was without any concrete evidence to support such a claim. What I will say is that our firm has litigated many drunk driving accidents over the years, and any accident happening at this time of night has potential to involve alcohol.
One of the reasons for this is because many people leave bars around this time and lose control while they’re intoxicated. If further investigations do determine that alcohol was a factor here, then further investigations need to be made into where the driver got their alcohol.
This is an important detail because in Texas dram shop law states that a licensed alcohol vendor which over-serves alcohol to an obviously intoxicated customer can be held liable for damages resulting from that person’s intoxication. A licensed alcohol vendor is expected to judge when their customers have had too much to drink and cut them off appropriately. If they fail to do this, they are putting lives at risk and contributing to the damage of any serious accident resulting from that person’s intoxication.
It’s important that when so many lives are affected by a serious accident like this that those responsible are held accountable for their actions. When a negligent business recklessly and illegally over-serves their customers, they deserve to be brought to justice just as a drunk driver would for their actions. The evidence that surrounding these kinds of accidents is often time-sensitive, so the sooner an investigator can look into these details, the sooner those affected by the incident can find a resolution.
