PHOENIX — A van packed with about 20 suspected illegal immigrants crashed into two cars in Phoenix while trying to elude authorities.

After Monday morning's collision, witnesses said they saw more than 15 people get out of the van, which had tipped on its side, and run into the neighborhood.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said officers first spotted the van driving erratically on Interstate 10.

At least 21 people were in custody, including the suspected driver of the van. All were taken to hospitals to be checked out for minor bruises and back pain.
