    The short answer would be that this is soimtheng that must be decided on a case-by-case basis by a jury of 12. One could craft an argument in almost any case that the negligence that caused the accident was independent from the intoxication. But I think the reality is, If you are driving while over the legal limit and you negligently cause a collision, there is an unspoken presumption that the intoxication caused or contributed to the negligence. Alcohol slows reaction time. So in virtually any scenario, it will play a factor in a driver’s ability to see, identify and avoid a hazard. While one might argue that it is a due process violation of drunk drivers to allow a conviction without specific proof that it was the alcohol use that resulted in the wreck vs just simple negligence, the law errs on the side of protecting the victim’s rights here not the drunk driver’s rights. (Could be because there really is not a big lobby for drunk drivers in Austin!)
