An Orem traffic crash has turned into an immigrations bust in Lindon.

It was a simple fender bender on 1600 North in Orem, but it got interesting when the driver who caused the accident ran away right after he rear-ended someone.

Three others inside the car told Utah Highway Patrol troopers he worked at Mountain States Steel plant in Lindon.

"The driver did work there at the steel company and actually ran over to work and was actually working. He was arrested," said UHP trooper Cameron Roden.

Roden says he'll face some charges, but immigration officers will take care of the rest.

The man in the country illegally, and so are his three friends.
