In the comments section:

"These kids are students at Villanova University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania went on vacation to Mexico on their spring break. I am a mother of a student at the university and is a truly sad to know of the death of William (God rest his soul) Our prayers and all the support of the world is with family Zimmermann. "

Other comments wonder why the Red Cross ambulances took all three to the same clinic, knowing there was just one doctor and nurse on duty.

It's their business model. Foreigners go to private clinics to be overcharged. Mexicans got the free clinics run by the government. The ambulance drivers make a healthy commission for bringing them to the private clinics. There are actual eyewitness stories of ambulance drivers fighting it out on the street to pick up a foreigner.

Remember the story of Ron Hoff? His wife went to the General Hospital in Ensenada and was treated for free. Meanwhile, Ron, who was in worse condition, was taken to the private clinic to be gouged.

Speaking of Cultural educations, the kid driving the car had better hope his parents have a few hundred grand of ready cash, or his is going to have quite a story to tell his grand kids. The farther you go up the legal system in Mexico, the more it costs. His family had probably give lizard lips a call.

He'll probably be charged with negligent homicide. It is going to take some feria to make this go away.

I think I have an idea what happened.
There are a few places on that road where you can change directions and cross to the other direction. However, this can be very *exciting and thrilling* do to since it's merging immediately with the traffic flow in the other direction, it's not an on ramp as we know them here.
I had opportunity to need to change directions once and it's scary if you are not super careful you can be t-boned easily.
It's likely a car full of college kids is less cautious than I.
I had a bad flu once and went to a clinic in Cabo, it's not very fancy. I am not even aware of a true hospital in Cabo.
I took my friend once to a hospital in San Jose del Cabo and it's funky, you would not like to be there if you had a serious problem.
My second biggest fear in Mexico is having a medical problem, the quality of care down there is not what we are accustomed to. My biggest fear is being crashed into by a drunk.

He was would have been charged with murder as that is the Mexican law. Is there an update on what happened to him or the Canadian women who was in charged after an accident in the same area on Feb. 3rd?
