After leaving La Paz on New Year's Day, we came across a truck that had just went off the highway, rolling many times and ejecting the driver through the passenger window. The poor guy landed on a cactus. I discreetly snapped a couple photos with my Blackberry, so the quality isn't very good.
We raced over and kept him alert for a half hour before the ambulance finally arrived. By then it was too late. He had head injuries that were pretty severe. Moral of the story: Don't get hurt in Mexico.
