Additionally, in Kinney County, after a chase, the car of an alleged immigrant smuggler caught fire when a fire started in the vehicle’s engine. At least five suspected immigrants were arrested, while one more immigrant and the driver managed to escape by running after abandoning the burning car. The chase occurred on Highway 674, reaching speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour. The car could not withstand the pressure and caught fire, reaching the gasoline tank and a portion of dry grass in the area. The driver of the car was allegedly a ‘coyote’ who attempted to evade the traffic stop, causing the chase. Fortunately, no one was injured in the fire.
