I've meant to get back to this with accurate info.

28-year-old Juan Campos has been charged with the killing of a 37-year-old man, after drove his car into a group of riders taking part in a weekend bike race near the U.S.-Mexico border.

Alejandro Alvarez was killed and 10 others injured after Campos lost control of his vehicle and collided with the massed riders. Campos, a resident of Brownsville, Texas, was apparently driving drunk and fell asleep at the wheel.

A city official was able to capture the tragic accident on film, showing the force with which the out of control car careened into the cyclists.
Authorities say that the crash occurred just 15 minutes into the planned 21 mile race on a stretch of Mexican highway between Playa Bagdad and Matamoros, Mexico, near Brownsville.


  1. The Massey Harris General Purpose is not chain drive they are gear drive.3000 were produced from 1930 to 1936.
    The one I own eas built in 1930
    Is the one in your picture for sale?

  2. I don't think so, it was recieved from a friend with cancer, and the new owner probably digs it for the sentimental value. I' don't know for sure, but unless you are in San Diego... You can always ask the guy! and this one really looks like its chain drive, I may be wrong.
