Ten Killed in Deadly SUV Rollover Crash – Sonoita, AZ
On an isolated stretch of highway in rural Sonoita Arizona, ten passengers were killed this past Saturday evening after a deadly SUV rollover accident. It occurred during a probable illegal border crossing and was said to be one of the most horrendous crashes the area has seen.
The ten people were killed when the driver of the SUV lost control and flipped over, tossing passengers from the automobile and onto the road. There were about thirty people in the SUV which lead Border Patrol Police to suspect that the individuals involved in the fatal automobile crash were trying to get into the country illegally. The rear seats were taken out of the Ford Excursion and people were stacked haphazardly into to the sport utility vehicle. At least a dozen people were injured and taken to area hospitals and five others fled the scene. Authorities are on the lookout for the missing immigrants.
