DUI Crash Results in Death of a Police Officer and Wounding of His Wife and Kids

WFAA has reported that the TABC is investigating Fuzzy's Taco Shop following a suspected DUI crash. The establishment is located at 6010 Azle Ave, Lake Worth, TX 76135. 

The fatal crash took place around 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 27, 2021. It happened at the intersection of Boat Club Road and Rocky Point Trail. Allegedly the suspect, 26-year-old Dylan Molina, had been drinking at Fuzzy's Taco Shop before getting into his vehicle and driving away. Just a few miles down the road, the suspected drunk driver ran a red light and crashed into the police officer's car. The police officer died at the scene, and his wife and two children were taken to the hospital to treat their serious injuries. 

Despite his efforts to flee, the bystanders restrained the suspect and reported smelling a "strong odor" of alcohol. Police later found out he had been in another accident just moments before this fatal crash. He has been arrested and faces intoxication manslaughter as well as three counts of intoxication assault.

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, or TABC, is investigating the establishment that sold the alcohol to Molina prior to the accidents. They are searching all audio, video, and credit card transactions to determine if the suspect was overserved.

Legal Recourse After Being Hit By a Drunk Driver

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is an experienced drunk driver victims attorney who represents drunk driving crash victims along with their families. He guides them through the legal process to get the financial compensation they rightfully deserve. Marc has shared some information regarding the legal recourse available to victims hit by a drunk driver.

"If a crash is caused by a drunk driver and leads to other people being injured or killed, the victims and their families have a right to seek justice. Too often, victims are left struggling with financial, physical, and emotional burdens, and compensation may be obtained through a civil lawsuit." 

"One legal option is to sue the drivers who caused the accident. However, this isn't the only legal action victims and their families may pursue. In some DUI crashes, the victims may be able to file a lawsuit against the alcohol vendor who provided the driver with the alcohol. This recourse varies by the state's dram shop laws."

"In Texas, dram shop laws state that you must establish the vendor provided alcohol to someone who was either underage or visibly intoxicated at the time they were served. This includes overserving patrons even though they are visibly intoxicated to the point they presented a clear danger to themself or others."

"Despite this sounding cut and dry, dram shop lawsuits can be confusing, and victims are urged to seek the legal aid of an experienced drunk driver victims attorney to prove the establishment failed to prevent damages caused by the suspect."
