Bailout Leads to Capture of 19 Undocumented Immigrants

Posted: Updated:

Another immigrant bailout happening just after midnight Saturday where authorities say 19 illegal immigrants jumped out of a vehicle and took off. It happened along FM 666 just one mile north of Highway 44. The vehicle pulled off to the side of the road and when agents approached the suburban, that's when the driver took off and plowed his vehicle through a field. The suburban eventually crashed into a ditch. Agents were able to take four illegal immigrants into custody at the site. They later caught up with 10 additional undocumented immigrants hiding in the field. Five others were taken in to custody after a concerned citizen reported seeing them in the same area. Officials say the illegal immigrants were from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.
