SAN ANTONIO — More than 40 people were found dead inside a semitruck in far southwest San Antonio Monday evening, multiple law enforcement sources tell KENS 5. 

A heavy law enforcement presence made up of over 20 emergency vehicles was deployed to the area of Quintana Road and Cassin Drive around 6 p.m., converging at a semitruck. That’s on the far southwest side, south of Pearsall Park.

It’s unknown if anyone has been detained. 

There were multiple ambulances and medical transports at the scene. Baptist Medical Center in downtown San Antonio told KENS 5 it has received five patients, all with critical injuries. At least three others were taken to a Methodist Healthcare facility in the Alamo City. 

KENS 5 has multiple crews working to find out more. San Antonio Police Chief William McManus is also on the scene, as is SAFD Chief Charles Hood; we’re expecting to hear from authorities soon.
