James Lee (2464)

10/16/2004: Jamir Valle Martinez was allegedly smuggling undocumented immigrants into the United States. Cochise County Sheriff's deputies took up the chase until high speeds made continued pursuit dangerous. A set of tire spikes was put on the road by a Sierra Vista Police Department officer near the intersection of the bypass and Buffalo Soldier Trail, police said. The crash then occurred. Eleven vehicles were involved. Initial reports indicate the truck's driver lost control, causing the vehicle to go airborne, smashing the tops of vehicles waiting to make a left turn off the southbound part of Highway 90 onto the bypass. Six people were killed. Martinez got a 35-year sentence. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1247905/posts
