A 16-year-old boy remains in juvenile custody in connection with a human smuggling incident in which one person was killed near San Manuel.
The teenager was driving a sedan that had been pulled over by Border Patrol agents on Highway 281 near mile marker 754 last Thursday night. As the vehicle stopped, four people jumped out and ran.
The DPS says one of the individuals ran onto Highway 281 and was struck by a truck. His body was then run over by another vehicle. The 16-year-old driver of the sedan was arrested and is being held on a charge of smuggling of persons.
