EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested a man suspected of transporting undocumented immigrants and who led agents on a brief chase Wednesday afternoon in East El Paso.
Border Patrol officials from the El Paso Sector said agents from the Ysleta Station attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but the driver allegedly sped off and tried to evade agents.
Officials said the suspect then exited the moving white van from the passenger door and was injured in the process.
Agents tended to the injured person and contacted EMS, officials said. Agents stayed with the suspect until emergency workers arrived.
The undocumented immigrants were taken into custody.
