    No, he was drunk and fell asleep. The driver was an American in Mexico, this just happened around a week or so ago. At least one of those cyclists died too.

    Yep, Monterrey, Mexico bike rally. Two dead so far, several more still in hospital, guy was at 4 times the legal limit on alcohol. He won't be coming home to the States for a good while, if ever.

    What is even more messed up is he slalomed thru three lead cars into the crowd of bikers, from what I've read. Apparently this was a sanctioned, police escorted community bke rally, and he was dodging cop cars.

    When I was a kid, a drunk driver came off the road in Mulino, Oregon, plowed through a bunch of boy scouts gathered in the early morning to go on an overnite camping trip. Hospitalized sixteen, killed three of them. He got a 30 year sentence for vehicular manslaughter and drunk driving, got paroled after 11 years. Two days after his release, he disappeared. They found his pickup, where someone forced it off a back road, but they never found him. I don't think the cops looked too hard - one of the boys he killed was the only child of a county sheriffs deputy.

    Gotta hand it to Sir Jakesus. At least there was a good laugh out of a horrible subject.

    I just stumbled on the picture and had no idea when or where. But it can happen to anyone anywhere.
  10. Scumbag drunk drivers deserve what they get. hopefully some of them end up in PMITA prison - but too often you hear about folks on their third DUI conviction driving w/o a lisence and there's not much you can do to stop them if they are left to their own devices, they just don't care who they hurt.

    At a guess I'd say that the Mexican authorities are not likely to treat this guy with kid gloves. And I doubt if our State Dept will be interested in pursuing the matter either. (Unless he has some real clout)

    This is one drunk killer who is likely to get everything he deserves and much, much more.
    And I'm not unhappy about it.

    Poorly delivered joke in bad taste.

    FYI, no one likes an idiot!
