Referee dies after red-carded player head butts him

Fox Sports – An amateur Mexican footballer is on the run after allegedly head-butting and inadvertently killing a referee who gave him a red card. Ruben Rivera Vazquez allegedly became incensed at his expulsion during a Sunday league match in Tulancingo, the second-biggest city in the state of Hidalgo. During his protestations, Vazquez head-butted referee Victor Trejo, who then fainted. Paramedics on site tried to revive the victim to no avail, and the alleged perpetrator fled in a pick-up truck after seeing the ref had suffered serious injury.
