The numbers up to 13 now. WTF were they thinking to pack 23 (yes - twenty three) people into a pickup? Another tragedy.

..victims not identified? Maybe so, but you can bet they were immigrants. 23 people in a pickup truck is mind boggling. Where are the seat belt cops when we need them?

Is it legal to ride in a truck bed now days. I see this all the time,.. not a sardine load, but a person or two, usually kids.

Understand (from tv news...) that these folks were probably illegals being smuggled over.
Matters little to me at least: Likely they all had families who have now lost them.
Terrible shame:
Sympathies to all affected.
