On June 3, Betters shook a truck on State Highway 86 and then left the road to drive a car hit a tree. Two passengers, who were undocumented immigrants, were in the car, one of whom died.

“These cases highlight the incredibly dangerous nature of human smuggling attempts,” US Federal Attorney General Glen B. McCormick said in a statement. “Illegal transportation of non-citizens is dangerous to all parties, including transporters, non-citizens, and the general public. Tragedy potential has always existed, and this time sadly it has become a reality. . “
