Drunk Driver Hits Bicyclists In Mexico

These Jaw Dropping Photos Were Snapped In Mexico Sunday:

MONTERREY, Mexico (AP) — A car has plowed into a bike race along a highway near the US-Mexico border, killing one and injuring 10 others.

Police investigator Jose Alfredo Rodriguez says the 28-year-old driver was apparently drunk and fell asleep when he crashed into the race.

A photograph taken by a city official shows bicyclists and equipment being hurled high in to the air by the collision.

Rodriguez says Juan Campos was charged with killing Alejandro Alvarez, 37, of Monterrey.

Authorities say the wreck happened 15 minutes into the race along a highway between Playa Bagdad and Matamoros.

Campos says he is an American citizen living in Brownsville, Texas. U.S. consulate spokesman Todd Huizinga said officials were looking into whether Americans were involved.


That has to be, hands down, the most painful photo ever.

Update: Additional footage and photos from the scene surface.

How tragic. Based on just the photo, I would have guessed more fatalities. Pretty amazing it stands at one.

I have to comment on that video you posted... The first frame says "US motorist crashes into bike race". If an illegal alien had done exactly the same thing in the US, what are would the likelihood be that their nationality would be mentioned in ANY reporting of the event?
