Deadly Race

I caught this in msn week in pictures. A very tragic and sad event, I dont know if this car did this on purpose, if it was drunk driving, or asleep at the wheel etc. If anyone knows fill me in. This lets road riders know your a target and you never know when it can happen.

not sure only frequent in the mtb sections and just learning my way around. I think I read in the blogs of this image that this was a drunk driver or something. Feel free to copy and paste this anyplace you need if allowed, or move it for that matter.

It showed up on a lot of blogs last week. It was in Mexico, the drivers (as I understood it) was intoxicated and fell asleep.

Yep, this is up in the forum.

It was a sanctioned race, the driver was visiting in Mexico from Texas, supposedly fell asleep and hit the peloton. The good news that the driver is in a Mexican jail. Trust me, they are a bit rougher on drunk drivers than in the US.
