5 dead as SUV chased by Border Patrol crashes in South Texas

Five undocumented immigrants were killed when an SUV they were in crashed by being chased by border patrol agents near Big Wells, Texas, June 17, 2018. Several people were ejected from the vehicle during the crash.

Border Patrol agents began chasing the vehicle around noon before a Dimmit County sheriff's deputy took over the chase, west of Big Wells, Boyd said.

The driver, believed to be a United States citizen, was rushed to a hospital; the passenger, also believed to be a USA citizen, now is in custody.

Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd told the outlet another five passengers were rushed to San Antonio Military Medical Center for emergency care.

Boyd said a total of 14 people were inside the SUV and several were ejected out of the vehicle when it rolled onto Highway 85. Boy believes the driver was scouting the area to try and pick up immigrants.

If you've already picked up a VPN, you can easily set up an endpoint in the US, UK, or Canada and stream the coverage from there. That means fewer casual viewers for Fox and a missed opportunity to promote an American team.

The sheriff said he hadn't spoken to Border Patrol on the exact cause of the pursuit and nature of the crash.

The sheriff said he didn't know where the immigrants were from but said most migrants who travel through the area are from Central America or Mexico.

Boyd said the vehicle was going more than 100 miles per hour before the crash.

Boyd said the driver of the Suburban was also injured and was flown to a San Antonio hospital.

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.
