SARITA, Texas (ValleyCentral) — Border Patrol agents found migrants inside a locked trunk of a car after the driver ran it into a fence, according to Customs and Border Protection.

Agents stationed near Kingsville tried to pull over a Lincoln Town car after the driver did a U-turn on U.S. Highway 77 near Sarita.


However, instead of stopping, the driver ran the car into a private property fence, where “several subjects fled into the brush.”

Border Patrol agents found two Mexican migrants inside the car’s locked trunk. Both were unharmed and did not require medical assistance, according to CBP. Subjects were processed accordingly.
