At least 46 people were found dead in an 18-wheeler Monday in San Antonio, Texas, according to multiple reports.
The individuals are believed to be migrants, according to the Texas Tribune, which cited federal, state and local authorities. Cartels and criminal smuggling groups have used large trucks and trailers through the area to attempt to traffic illegal aliens.
There were 16 others transported to the hospital, according to KSAT12. The investigation has been turned over to federal authorities, the outlet reported.
