It was a horrifying scene in Hidalgo County Thursday evening. A vehicle carrying over a dozen individuals rolled over.
FOX 2 cameras were rolling at around 5:30 p.m. along Montecristo Road and Monmack in the Edinburg area. At the scene were 14 victims being treated.
According to the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Department, eight were taken to a local hospital for minor injuries and released into Border Patrol custody, as well as the remaining six individuals. It’s unclear what caused the rollover.
Scenes of this nature are usually tied to human smuggling, but Border Patrol hasn’t officially commented on that at this time.
