  • At least 5 die when SUV crashes after being chased by Border Patrol, then deputy, Texas sheriff says

At least 12 people were ejected from a Chevy Suburban SUV carrying illegal immigrants after it crashed following a high-speed chase with U.S. Border Patrol vehicles near the Texas-Mexico border, a sheriff said Sunday, adding that five illegal immigrants were confirmed dead.

Four people believed to be undocumented immigrants were pronounced dead on the scene with a fifth pronounced dead after being transported to a San Antonio hospital.

Five people were taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center, including the driver who is believed to be a US citizen.

When asked why Border Patrol agents started the chase, Boyd said, "It's called good police work".

The Texas Department of Public Safety said it was investigating the crash, which occurred at 11:18 a.m. local time outside of Big Wells, Texas.

Some injured were taken by helicopter to San Antonio, about 90 miles (144.83 kilometres) northeast.


According to the sheriff's office, four individuals died on scene and one later died in the hospital.

Two of the vehicles stopped and arrests were made from each vehicle, according to the U.S. Border Patrol.

The vehicle traveling more than 100 miles per hour when it crashed, according to local authorities. "This is a flawless example of why our borders need to be secure".

This SUV was packed with undocumented immigrants as it crashed trying to escape border patrol.

Authorities are investigating the scene where a auto full of undocumented immigrants being chased by Border Patrol agents crashed.

"The vehicle ran off the road and caught gravel and then tried to recorrect and then caused the vehicle to turn over several times", he said. The driver was taken into custody.
