There could be a few avenues this accident takes. Depending on the liquor liability laws, there could be a claim against a bar if the driver of the offending vehicle recently left one after being over-served. On the off chance there is no dram shop claim available, there could be a negligence claim against the driver of the vehicle if they are found to have been intoxicated and speeding. Again, the facts rest on a number of variables, but this accident would surely be worth a much closer look than this news article provides.
