Bar serves teen who causes fatal crash

People in Texas know that the legal drinking age is 21. They also know that driving after consuming alcohol is dangerous and can be illegal if a person is under the age of 21 or has a blood alcohol content level exceeding 0.08%. Unfortunately, these facts seem to make no difference to some people out there as they simply wish to do what they want with no regard for the safety of others.

The responsibility to drive safely is generally thought to be owned by each driver. However, there are situations when other people or entities may have some responsibility in the actions of others. One example of this can be seen in the recent tragic death of a motorist in the wee hours of the morning along South Main Street in Houston.

As reported by ABC 13, a teenager who was only 19 years old had been served alcohol at a bar in downtown Houston. That person then got behind the wheel of a vehicle and, while driving on the wrong side of the road, rammed into another vehicle head-first. The driver of the second vehicle died in the ensuring fire.

The bar staff may be at risk of being charged in the fatal crash but no details have been released on that yet. So far, the intoxicated teen driver faces charges of failing to stop and render aid and manslaughter. The driver also tried to flee the scene of the accident in another person's vehicle but was unsuccessful in doing so. The driver's BAC is not known.
