SUV rolls over, killing nine of 19

August 08, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A sport utility vehicle packed with illegal immigrants rolled over on a rural highway outside Phoenix, killing nine people and injuring the other 10 aboard, authorities said.

"We have cause to believe that this was a human smuggling operation, and so the people involved were illegally in the United States," said Vinnie Picard, a spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
