Vehicle Accidents in Texas
It’s common for drunk drivers to cause accidents between the hours of midnight and 6:00 a.m., especially if the accident happens on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. When individuals get too intoxicated, they make poor decisions since their ability to rationalize decreases as more alcohol enters their bloodstream. Sadly, under these conditions, they’re more prone to get behind the wheel, drive recklessly, and accidentally cause a major accident that results in injuries.
