A 41-year-old man was killed in a car accident when he was ejected from a rolling vehicle. Officials say that alcohol was a contributing factor in the accident. The vehicle, driven by a 28-year-old man, ran off the right side of the road and rolled twice. The fatally injured victim was ejected through the rear window. The driver and another 28-year-old man were treated for minor injuries.
Drivers who are under the influence of alcohol put themselves, their passengers and other commuters at risk. That is why it is a serious offense in Texas to operate a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The Texas limit for blood alcohol concentration for drivers is 0.08 percent. Texas also has a zero-tolerance law for underage drinking. Any detectable amount of alcohol in drivers under 21 is a crime.
