  • Immigrants killed in tractor collision reportedly paid $ 10,000 to cross the border
  • Investigations into the accident in California continue and the causes of the accident are not known
  • The injured could be deported as soon as they improve, or submit an asylum application

After it was reported that the clash between a pickup truck full of immigrants against a tractor in California, will leave 13 dead, now they report that each of them payment up to $ 10,000 to enter the United States, according to the news portal of Fox News.

At first it had been said that there were 15 deceased, but later it was learned that there were only 13, of the 28 people who were traveling in the SUV.

As you will recall, the accident occurred when a red Ford Expedition carrying 28 people was struck in the driver’s side by a tow truck, killing at least 13 people, shortly after 6:15 a.m. Tuesday, in Highway 115 in Imperial County, authorities said.

The rest of the occupants remain in clinics where they receive medical care, but most could be deported as soon as they heal, unless they submit an asylum application.

An official report states that immigrants paid between $ 5,000 and $ 10,000 to be smuggled across the border, however, Guatemalan immigrants paid a higher price.

The immigrants’ ages ranged from 15 to 53 and were a mix of men and women, authorities said.

What will happen to the immigrants killed in the California tractor crash is still unknown, but their bodies could be returned to their country shortly.

CHP chief Omar Watson explained the accident: “Obviously, that vehicle is not intended for so many people. It is unfortunate that many people were put in that vehicle because there are not enough safety limitations to keep those people in that vehicle. “

The causes of the accident are being investigated and the authorities do not know if the driver of the truck, who died at the scene, stopped before crossing the road to the large platform.

The driver of the tractor, which was hauling two gravel trailers, was hospitalized with some non-life threatening injuries.

In turn, Border Patrol agents reported that the smuggling was probably organized by a network of criminal gangs that help thousands of immigrants cross the border between the United States and Mexico.

In the investigation into the case of immigrants killed in a collision with a tractor in California, authorities issued a statement on how they entered the country.

Customs and Border Protection reported to Fox News that the mishap happened after a hole was dug in the border fence near Calexico, California.

The fence, which may have been made between 2007 and 2009, was cut several miles to the east where the entrance is located and has nothing to do with the construction of the wall of the hy former president, Donald Trump.
