SONOITA, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a sports utility vehicle crammed with 22 people rolled over in a remote area near Tucson, Ariz., killing 10 and injuring the others.

Arizona Department of Public Safety Joy Craig said Sunday there was no rear seat in the Ford Excursion and most of the passengers were ejected when the SUV crashed just before midnight Saturday. She says all the victims are believed to be undocumented aliens from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and perhaps Mexico.

She said, “They stack live people, as many as they can, like stacking wood.”

The dozen who were injured were taken to hospitals.

The department is investigating what caused the SUV to roll over.
