    Default Drunk Driver plows into bike race.

    A car driven by an alleged drunken driver plowed into a bicycle race along a highway near the U.S.-Mexico border Sunday, killing one cyclist and injuring 10 others.

    Juan Campos was apparently drunk and had fallen asleep at the wheel before crashing into the race in Monterrey, Mexico, police investigator Jose Alfredo Rodriguez said.

    A photograph taken by a city official shows the horrifying moment of impact. The force of the collision sent bicyclists and equipment high into the air and Matamoros newspaper El Maņana described children crying, women shouting for help and men trying to lynch Campos before police arrived to arrest him.

    Killed in the crash was Alejandro Alvarez, 37, of Monterrey.

    Campos told police he was an American citizen from Brownsville, Texas. The U.S. consulate could not immediately confirm that.

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

    The crash happened 15 minutes into the race along a highway between Playa Bagdad and Matamoros, authorities said.

    Look how Fox News conveniently crops the police car out:

    So that's pretty awesome. From what I understand the police officer swerved out of the way of the car and pretty much let him hit the bikers. Yay!

    In the top left- that's someone's helmet being ejected from their head. That's how hard they got hit.

    I have a soft-spot for cyclists because I actually like my bike, and sometimes ride on roads. It's fucking scary having 2 tons of steel hurtle less than a metre away at a good 80+ kilometres an hour. And this is exactly why- because in the event of a collision, the guy with the car is alright, while you'll be hit so hard your helmet will come off and you'll probably bleed out or die from internal injuries long before anyone could help you.

    And the fucker probably kept driving, too.

    They should lynch him twice, then!

    I was in a car where the driver pulled out into oncoming traffic. Car crash impact is no joke. I was wearing a metal watch which broke and flew off my wrist from the impact.
