Video: amatuer athletes worst fear realized as drunk driver plows into cyclist survivors speak out

Posted Jul 14 2009 10:04pm

Drunkdriver This is probably every cyclist worst fear.

You are riding your bike in a beautiful canyon on a scenic road at 10:30 in the morning with your friends when out of the blue you find yourself face down in the dirt and one of your friends is dead.

But that' s exactly what happened in Valencia, California when a drunk driver in a Ford F150 plowed into a small group of friends out for a morning ride.

According to ABC news:

"The truck driver, 20-year-old Marco Valencia of Canyon Country, is in custody and faces charges of murder, hit-and-run and driving under the influence.

Both victims said one minute they were on their bikes enjoying their ride, and the next minute they were smacked off their bikes and sent crashing into the ground."

Watch the video below as two of the victims talk to a local reporter about the accident:
