One of the three cyclists who being treated in intensive care after being hit by a driver who tested positive for alcohol and drugs has died after four days of treatment.

José Antonio Albi, who was just 28 years of age, was operated on for head injuries to try to reduce neurological pressure. Meanwhile, two other cyclists remain in the ICU fighting for their lives.
