Cyclists killed in crash with deputy

Jesus. Suffering. Christ.

I was just enjoying getting back on the bike last night after spending 2 weeks off because of a back injury, and then I had to read this...

The California Highway Patrol is investigating why Santa Clara County Deputy James Council, 27, crossed the centerline on a right turn and hit the cyclists head on at about 10:30 a.m. Council, who had been with the department for 18 months, was put on administrative leave. He had started his 12 1/2-hour shift at 6 a.m.

Two witnesses said Council told them he had fallen asleep at the wheel, the Chronicle reported.

Jesus. Suffering. Christ. I'm so speechless right now, I don't even know how to react or what to do about it.
