That is infuriating! Hopefully the driver will get EVERYTHING he deserves!

Appears to have happened south of the border, so Mexican jail awaits this driver.

Drunk and asleep at the wheel, could have been pedestrians, could have been people standing by the side of the road...happened to be cyclists. The driver has been charged for the one death, at least.

I have no sympathy or compassion for people who drive drunk or stoned; none whatsoever.

Here is a pic of the crash:

Wow. Just wow. Mexico definitely jails people, whether they are a US citizen or not.

Looks like the guy in green and maybe that one guy who is sideways are the only ones who escaped needing only a new pair of shorts. Karma awaits in Mexican jail.
