Border Patrol agents found 21 illegal aliens attempting to hide in a utility truck Monday morning.

The group had crossed into the United States along the Colorado River near Yuma , Arizona and were attempting to load into a large utility service type vehicle. Agents were able to apprehend 17 individuals but 5 others , including the driver of the truck , fled back to Mexico. Mexican law enforcement officers were able to apprehend another individual who had ran back across the border while agents waited for transportation for the group. 

The utility truck was registered in Las Vegas , Nevada , but had Arizona license plates. All the individuals in the group were Mexican nationals and were returned to Mexico.
