As this is in Texas, I'm not surprised.
 
While I'm not making excuses for the 20-year-old driver who may have been drunk or not, I wonder why two kids were pushing their family truck on a dark road. The whole thing sounds tragic, especially if the driver who hit the truck would have done so even if sober.

Also from the South earlier this year, guy found shot dead in the middle of the road. Police learned that nobody was willing to 'fess up to doing the deed, but several were willing to point out that the dead guy was fleeing the scene of a rape.

The second-to-last "tough on drunk drivers" bill in Massachusetts followed a drunk driving wreck. Police delayed releasing their investigation until after the bill passed. The sober driver was at fault, ran a red light and hit the drunk driver with right of way. A similar case resulted in the state Supreme Court precedent that teens who show fake ID to buy liquor can sue bars that serve them. The drunk teen said if he was sober he could have avoided the car that hit him.

Most of the time they'll pin the blame on the drunk. If nobody is badly hurt the blame doesn't matter. DUI+driving to endanger+at fault in accident is basically the same as DUI alone. It's expensive and you can go to jail but usually won't if it's your first offense. If somebody is badly hurt or dead, the system gets really angry if you're drunk or the victim is pretty.
