"He was able to get him out of the vehicle and the driver was actually walking", Boyd said.

Twelve immigrants were ejected and four died at the scene when the vehicle crashed and rolled over, according to Boyd.

SATX-TV reported that a sixth person has possibly died in the hospital. "It's a problem. This is, I think, a ideal example of why our borders need to be secure". The passenger in the front seat is reportedly in police custody.

KABB in San Antonio reported the driver was believed to be a US citizen, and had been transported to a hospital.

The driver of a Chevy Suburban with 14 people inside fled from authorities at speeds up to 100 miles per hour before he lost control of the SUV and it rolled several times. The passenger who was not ejected from the vehicle also was believed to be an American citizen, and in custody.

The sheriff said it was just the latest in a series of police chases involving human and drug smugglers in the Big Wells area.

"If it can be built, then I think it should be built, but along with that, I think there needs to be cameras", Boyd said.

Footage from a motorist who witnessed the crash and posted video to Facebook shortly after shows at least four bodies on the ground, the mangled Chevrolet and several Border Patrol vehicles at the scene.

CNN reports they reached out to Yolanda Choates, a spokeswoman for US Customs and Border Protection, but she directed all comments back to the sheriff's department.

Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd told KSAT that the chase reached speeds of about 100 miles per hour.
