Dead, 12 Immigrants Ejected After Car Chase with Texas Border Patrol

Dead, 12 Immigrants Ejected After Car Chase with Texas Border Patrol

Most of the occupants were believed to be living in the country without legal permission according to Fox.

The vehicle was traveling in excess of 100 miles per hour in an apparent attempt to evade Border Patrol agents, Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd told the news outlet. Six people were taken to a San Antonio hospital, and four others went to a local hospital in Dimmit County.

The SUV was carrying 14 people ― 12 of whom were ejected upon impact.

Big Wells is located on State Highway 85 between Carrizo Springs and San Antonio. That agent stopped one vehicle and radioed a description of the other two vehicles to other agents, the agency said. He also cited this as a reason why it is important to build a wall to secure the border with Mexico.

According to WOAI 5 people were transported to San Antonio Military Medical Center.

The incident started after a Border Patrol agent in Carrizo Springs suspected smuggling when he saw a trio of vehicles pass him on a rural highway, US Customs and Border Protection 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.

Officials said four of the immigrants died in the crash, while nine others were injured.

Border patrol agents use all-terrain vehicles (ATV) to search for illegal immigrants along the US.

Several people were ejected from the vehicle during the crash.

Breitbart Texas reached out to Border Patrol officials for additional information about the potential human smuggling case gone bad.
