Terrible Accident: Car Crashes into Bike Race in Mexico

3 06 2008

The Associated Press (CNN) reported that a car plowed into a weekend bicycle race along a highway near the US-Mexico (MONTERREY) border, killing one and wounding 10 others, police said.

The 28-year-old driver was apparently drunk and fell asleep when he crashed in the race, said police investigator Jose Alfredo Rodriguez. A photo taken by an official of the city showed cyclists and equipment launched high into the air by the collision.

Rodriguez said Juan Campos was charged with murder Alejandro Alvarez, 37, of Monterrey. Authorities said the wreck happened 15 minutes in the 34 kilometers (21 miles) race Sunday along a road between Baghdad and Playa Matamoros, across from Brownsville, Texas.
Campos said he is a U.S. citizen living in Brownsville. The USA Consulate could not immediately confirm that.

“We’re looking into the incident in terms of whether American citizens were involved”…

Well, the accident was on Tamaulipas and unfortunally one biker died in the accident. Yeap, the driver was drunk.

This photo was on my desktop the morning after the accident, but the police car was not in the photo. What gives? If the cop was there with the riders, how come he didn’t intervene?

My grandmother was killed by a drunk driver. People really die from that sort of thing. I wish more people would realize that they could actually kill someone.

This is very shocking news, how can anything like that be allowed to happen?
I don’t think an eletric chair is enough to compensate the losses on the bikers who may have their entire career ruined by this accident.

Well this dude is gonna learn about Mexican law, not good. The charge is MURDER. And no they don’t have the death sentance here in Mexico, what they do have is jails no one ever wants to land in.

One of the few concerns I have about living in Mexico is the high number of drunk drivers on the road. People are only ever charged if they BREAK the law. Mexico really needs to crack down on drunk drivers. They are 50 years behind Canada/USA in that regard.

Chris, you should first learn to spell properly before making inane bigoted comments. It does nothing for your credibility when commenting. For the record, we are all humans, and are all equal, and should learn to get on better together. This was a tragic accident with dire consequences and you shouldn’t make light of it.

30 09 2010
CG

We are all equal??
HAHAHAHAH.

No we arent. There are rich and poor, nice and cruel, smart and dumb. We are not equal. If we were the world would be a very different place.

That aside. It is tragic to see this. But then. All the people saying driver should get the chair. Death penalty is a bit extreme for that. Though an eye for an eye seems fair. So i would say life in a Mexican prison is fair. Killing the driver wont bring back that guy or heal the others injuries. Wont change anything and it wont bring satisfaction to the family of the dead cyclist.

Stop bitching and just lament. Say well wishings on the deceased instead of shouting for my needless death.

He could have at least got out of the car and raped a biker or two. I mean, he’s going to prison for murder, one instance of rape would be worth having sex one last time before going away.
I’d have raped the dead bicyclist. That would have been cool.

I’m blaming that police officer in the car. He should ram directly into that car by his passenger side (there is no one in a car by him). He has airbag and road is straigth. Racing on highway without any security it is out of the question.
