The drunk, Juan Campos, that drove into the cyclists claims to be an American citizen. The U.S. consulate is looking into it. I highly doubt our consulate is going to do back bends to help this criminal they way the Mexican consulate interferes in our laws to defend their criminals. Juan Campos needs to spend his life in a Mexican jail.

MONTERREY, Mexico (AP) — A car plowed into a weekend bike race along a highway near the U.S.-Mexico border, killing one and injuring 10 others, police said.

The 28-year-old driver was apparently drunk and fell asleep when he crashed into the race, said police investigator Jose Alfredo Rodriguez.

A photograph taken by a city official showed bicyclists and equipment being hurled high into the air by the collision.

Rodriguez said Juan Campos was charged with killing Alejandro Alvarez, 37, of Monterrey.

Authorities said the wreck happened 15 minutes into the 34-kilometer (21 mile) race Sunday along a highway between Playa Bagdad and Matamoros, across from Brownsville, Texas.

Campos said he is an American citizen living in Brownsville. The U.S. Consulate could not immediately confirm that.

“We are looking into the incident in terms of whether American citizens were involved,”

    About time the reverse happens . To many Mexican drunk drivers have killed USA citizens. Sounds cruel to say it but that is how i view it.
    Hope the Mexican government kicks up a stink so we can point fingers, that is if he is in fact a USA citizen.

    We have not heard the last of this story. What are the chances that IF this drunk mexican does turn out to be an anchor baby or something pathetic like that, That the U.S government will end up being sued by the family’s of those who were hit AND an admonishment from the mexican government wanting us to keep our drunks out of their sorry ass country and from victimizing them.

    That cock roach drug dealer who got shot in the ass (should have killed him) by Ramos and Compean is still suing the feds for his injuries and he will without a doubt get paid big time.
