In Los Angeles, a car smashes through the front of a liquor store and kills one and injures two.

With alcohol ruled out as a contributing factor my first thought about this “alcohol related” death was “what are the odds?” If not taken rhetorical the answer is actually heartening, back in the seventies the odds were 2 out of 3 that a traffic fatality was alcohol related- now it’s closer to 1 out of 3. Still too much, but it is substantial progress.
