One dead, 14 injured. The driver was drunk and high on drugs.  This picture says it all.  Sad.

I clicked on this with the hope that it was some kind of joke thread  :( 

Does Mexico have the death penalty?
Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.

Unfortunally, they don't.  That is why so many run south of the border.  But no worries, justice will be served by PANCHO (Bubba) when he gets inside.

Beercan,
Please post link to full story or email to me.  I would like to read to see where this happened.  Thanks.

Nevermind... I found the link... Even found this video of the aftermath... you can see the pile of bikes and what the car looked like afterwards...  Again, if you don't have the stomach for this don't click on the link.  The driver was a US citizen (supposively).

I think about sh#t like that all the time when I'm riding the road bike, just not that intense! Seems like there is always some jerk that has to try to mess with you.
If you don't crash occassionaly, you're not riding hard enough!!
