A vehicle carrying more than two dozen suspected illegal immigrants rolled as it entered onto Highway 92 from Miller Canyon Road south of Sierra Vista, injuring at least 11, a local fire official said.
Ten people were taken to Sierra Vista Regional Health Center and another was airlifted to University Medical Center in Tucson for injuries that were not life-threatening, said Bill Miller, fire chief for the Fry Fire District.
"Most were minor injuries, cuts and abrasions, some possible fractures," Miller said.
After the wreck on Sunday, a number of the passengers fled the scene toward Hereford Road, where they were later found and treated for injuries, he said.
The Sierra Vista Fire Department, the Cochise County Sheriff's Office and the U.S. Border Patrol also responded to the scene, Miller said.
It’s a good thing this happened in America and not Mexico. In Ammerica, when this happens, you are taken to the hospital. In Mexico, they just tell you to go home.
Suspected immigrants? Of course that means they hadn’t yet shown their VISAs for proper ID, right?
I wonder why the one was airlifted when they are saying no life-threatening injuries.
Getting so tired of paying for this, and always praying we won’t need the ER at the same time the illegal aliens do.... *sigh*
What are they going to do when we are forced to drive smart cars?
Soon to be what we have under Obamacare.
Yeah, FREE HEALTHCARE.
But ya’ll come back and see us again. /s
Look on the bright side, Obamacare may just change all that and tell them to get on the list if they want to go to the hospital
Certain people will fall under the “needy” plan
and won’t be bothered with bills.
Sweep up the smashed beer can posing as a car.
I just feel bad for the guy whose SUV they just trashed. Probably someone in Tucson or Phoenix. These bass turds did this with my son’s brand new Harley Davidson edition, Ford F250. They totalled it. I don’t want to hear about “poor illegal immigrants” hiding in the shadows. That’s a crock. Go Sheriff Joe!!!
Should have asked permission to land in Mexico, dumped his/her butt off and become airborne again heading north of the border.
Imagine the cost...what WE would be paying for the kind of care these people are getting for FREE!!! Yes, it’s on the taxpayer dole, BUT, most of us having to be lifeflighted with any kind of major medical problem...without insurance...we’d be RUINED financially...spending the rest of our lives trying to pay the bill...something illegals simply walk away from, change their names and assume their new identities.
At this point I think the only way that border would ever be shut down would be if the Mexican Gov decides they want to do it.
Anamorphic Motor Vehicle Revolts, must be a leftover prior to Gov takeover.
Now we’ll get saddled with their healthcare bills after American citizens are forced out of the hospital to make room for the illegals. Obama talked of “change” and he was right on target.
But yall come back and see us again. /s
Prayers for the injured and their families.
Maybe they're just old fashion wetback illegal aliens?
Or more likely they're just undocumented democrats.
Oooh, you’re gonna get in trouuuuuuble!
Two radio hosts were kicked off the air and there’s boycotts of the station, KLBJ in Austin, Texas, and all kinds of hoopla over them saying.... shhhh, the W word!!!!
Any vehicle passing through Sierra Vista should have wheels on the roof.
Illegal alien criminal scum.
No sympathy for illegals anymore. Sorry, can’t get tears for this kind of stuff.
Funny you say that. When I was in the garden city* of Juarez, I noticed a disproportionate number of one legged men, and I thought that was odd. Later, I was informed that for many maladies (such as a broken leg), the doctors there just cut off the offending limb and call it a day.
In America we give dogs better treatment than that.
Should have asked permission to overfly the border by 100 yards at a low elevation, kicked his/her butt out and returned north of the border to the home field.
