No one's home at the wheel

First, Black Mountain, now this:

What happened 15 minutes into a 21 mile (34 km) race on a highway between Playa Bagdad and Matamoros, Mexico. And there was even a police escort!

Someone's helmet came off.

1 killed, 10 injured.

The 28-year-old driver was allegedly drunk and had fallen asleep at the wheel.

Fatality: Alejandro Alvarez, 37.


Speaking from experience, I would say SCUBA diving, rock climbing, caving, are safer than riding on the road.

Uh, excuse me but what exactly the (BLEEP) is that? Thats not real life, that's something out of Die Hard. And for real? Fell asleep? I say he was drunk and thought it would be fun to play a game of bowling with the cyclist as pins. Bloody.
