Don't drink and drive.
A Texan drunk driver drove though a pack of cyclists who were in a starting stage of a race in Mexico, killing a cyclist and leave many injured . The horrific crash was captured by a photographer who was at the scene.

A note to those drunk drivers out there. If you got shitfaced, sleep in the gutter, the pavement or anywhere as long as you don't drive back home. We don't give a shit if you die like a road kill in a crash, but we curse you till the highest heaven when innocent people died or injured because of your reckless behavior. Better yet, don't drink at all.

Picture and news after the link. Warning: it's graphic and sad.

Texas Man Kills Cyclist, Injures Others in Drunk Driving Nightmare in Mexico

Just 15 minutes in, the third annual Matamoros-Bagdad Cycling Tour in Mexico plunged into chaos when a drunk driver from Texas smashed head-on into the group of riders.

Brownsville resident Juan "Jesse" Campos, who had spent the prior evening partying with booze and cocaine, fell asleep while driving between the towns of Playa Bagdad and Matamoros near the US-Mexico border.

The cyclists had just started making their way along the opposite side of the highway on the 34km race when, tragically, Campos' 1989 Grand Marquis veered off onto the wrong side of the road and slammed into the center of the peloton.

A photographer documenting the race managed to record the moment immediately after the collision: it's a scene of utter carnage, with bodies and equipment thrown into the air.

Campos claims to have no recollection of the crash, and insists that he woke up only afterwards. He's now being held in a Mexican jail while authorities attempt to sort out the case.

30-year-old Brownsville cyclist Alejandro Alvarez was killed in the accident, while ten other riders were seriously injured.
