Undocumented immigrants are in Border Patrol custody, but not before their smuggler took them and La Joya police on a dangerous chase.
It happened around 5pm Wednesday as police tried to pull over the driver. The driver stopped the truck near a Penitas neighborhood where the driver and six of the immigrants got away, but 13 immigrants were captured.
