Oh... My....God

In Mexico this weekend there was a 34 kilometer bike race close to the US/Mexican border. About 15 minutes into the race a drunk driver who fell asleep behind the wheel plowed into the race, killing one and injuring 10 others. Juan Campos was charged with killing Alejandro Alvarez, 37, of Monterrey. Astonishingly a city official caught the crash on film, as you can see...

The first thing I thought about was the Roger Milliken race this year. Matt Gunnell made the call at that race to have a guy taken off the road who was trying to drive onto the course. Turns out the guy was shitbombed and the result was him being hauled in for his 4TH!!! DUI. Looking at that photo freaks me out since that could have been the result at the Milliken race had it not been for Matt's quick thinking.

I thought racing was supposed to be safe! Closed courses with no cars, right???? WTF!!!
