Death in the Desert
This happened about 8 am this morning, July 13, 2008, on California Highway 78 at a dirt road that takes off known as Midway Wells.
A smuggler driving a load of Illegal Aliens apparently drove through the desert, around the checkpoint just west of Midway Wells, and tried to execute a hard left turn onto 78 East. The right front rim durg into the pavement, and the overloaded Chevy Suburban overturned, and threw several people out. One was dead at scene.
