Two men attempting to enter the United States illegally early Tuesday morning were thwarted when their SUV got stuck on top of the border fence 20 miles west of Yuma, Arizona.
Shortly after midnight, Border Patrol agents patrolling the Imperial Sand Dunes encountered a silver Jeep Cherokee attempting to drive over the International Boundary fence using a make-shift ramp extending from Mexico into the United States.
The ramp’s flawed design caused the Jeep to become “high centered,” and unable to move as it drove over the precipice of the 14-feet-high fence.
When the agents approached the stranded vehicle, two men fled into Mexico. The agents removed the Jeep from the fence, and seized both the vehicle and the ramp.
