    Default Drunk Driver Plows Into Bike Race

    June 03, 2008 12:00am

    THIS horrifying picture shows the moment a US man apparently drunk and asleep ploughed into cyclists on a bike race - killing one and injuring at least 10 others.



    Driver Juan Campos, 28, was charged with killing Alejandro Alvarez, 37, along the highway near the US-Mexico border.

    Authorities said the wreck happened 15 minutes into the 34km race yesterday between Playa Bagdad and Matamoros, across from Brownsville, Texas.

    Campos, who police claimed was drunk and asleep during the incident, said he was an American citizen living in Brownsville. The US Consulate could not immediately confirm that.

    "We are looking into the incident in terms of whether American citizens were involved," consulate spokesman Todd Huizinga said.

    That's messed up. One dead is amazing the way the cyclists are flying in the air. Can't wait for the jetson cars that drive themselves. Thats the only thing that is gonna solve the drunk driving problem.

    Can you imagine how the guy in the foreground, with the green sleeves, felt?

    Well, I'm assuming he won the race.

    Fuckin' idiot drunk driver. You know if you're going to drink and drive and kill and injure people, make it worth it. Like, why couldn't this have been a KKK rally he was driving through?

    Dangit. Just another reason that one should not drink and then get behind the wheel.

    You just have to wonder how serious the other injuries are. I have to imagine that there are some people in that picture that have some sort of spinal cord injury.

    Are you sure that's not Neil Young and his buddy?

    Alcohol is the single most dangerous thing in the U. S. today. Add up all of the drunk driving accidents, murders, suicide of all of the people under the influence of alcohol, and it would probably be enough to populate a small city.

    As a cyclist that is pretty disturbing. I think I will stick to my bike path along the lake.

    Guess even if they had police escorts, something like this could still happen unfortunately. That picture is painful to look at. Those poor people. They really need to throw the book at that idiot.

    The sad thing is that they did have a police escort:

    As someone who has drank and drove countless times, gotten in trouble for it a few times, and now doesn't drink at all, it doesn't surprise me seeing stuff like this happen.

    If all the deaths and major injuries from drunk driving occured only on one day of the calendar year, there would be much more outrage and a call for even stricter laws and penalties...

    Having said that, even with stricter laws and penalties, I still highly doubt the number would drop significantly because the idea of getting pulled over/killing someone/etc... "won't happen to me" as most hardcore drunks like myself would think...

    It really is too fuckin' bad such an evil thing like alcohol is legal and marijuana isn't...

    They really need to legalize marijuana so I can get some for medicinal purposes. I've heard it helps with MS.

    I'm sure it can't hurt.
