In Penitas, a couple of suspected human smugglers led police on a high speed chase that didn't end well for them.

Police say the chase ended when they slammed their Ford Expedition into a pole on Chihuahua and Military road. The smugglers didn't surrender though, instead, they ran towards the border wall and jumped over it. What they didn't know was there was a 20 foot drop on the other side of the fence. Police say one of the suspects broke both of his legs and the second one only his toe. Back at the vehicle, police say they found eleven illegal immigrants inside. Both smugglers were arrested and taken to a local hospital for their injuries.
