a pursuit, the Border Patrol Agents continued down the road when they suddenly saw smoke up ahead and noticed the “suspicious” car had collided head-on with another car. The driver and passenger of the suspicious car jumped from their seats and ran into the desert. Officers found two illegal immigrants in the backseat suffering from non life-threatening injuries. Two female passengers were rescued from the other car. The 55-year-old driver was transported to a trauma center with non life-threatening injuries and her passenger, 80-year-old Gracie Baldwin, was pronounced dead before reaching the hospital.
Border Patrol agents apprehended the driver and his passenger a short time later. They have been identified as 30-year-old William Huebbe and 25-year-old Robert Butcher. The two will be arrested after they are released from the hospital.
