2004  » Vuelta a los Yungas

In the Vuelta a los Yungas near Kalajahuira in Bolivia, Julio Caesar Cheek after crossing the finishing line was from unknown reasons hit from behind by Óscar Auza, sending the former's car into a small house, hitting journalist Juan Carlos Toro and photographer Ángel Illanes, and pinning two women, 70-year old Mrs. Julia Tinkuta (who died in hospital of her injuries) and Alicia Flores. The three survivors were all in a pretty bad way, with a broken arm amongst other injuries.
