This photo really pissed me off when I saw it this morning after waking up in Providence, Rhode Island.
An American drunk driver, apparently asleep at the wheel, plowed into several cyclists during a race in Mexico, killing one and injuring the others. The photo is absolutely terrible, but this is the reality when cars collide with cyclists. I can imagine this is what happened when a similar accident occurred near our old house in Cupertino, when a California Highway Patrol officer killed two cyclists along Stevens Canyon Road.

That’s sickening. I don’t think I can ride my bike to the bank tonight. Just sickening.
Yeah it is pretty disturbing that this happened and quite unfortunate as well. But from a photofraphers stand point. That is one sweet picture. Talk about perfect timing and such an accurate shot. You can really see the story clearly through this picture.
Yikes! I heard it’s already pretty scary to drive in Mexico, so I could only imagine how dangerous it would be for cyclists. Yet, with that police escort in the right-hand side of the photo, it’s amazing and sad how this could still happen. At least the driver must have been arrested pretty quickly.
Was that police escort also drunk ? They should have been protecting the cyclists by driving BEFORE them !!! Kudos for the photographer indeed. Sad .. very sad story.
