Border Patrol chase ends in deadly crash

At least five people were killed and several others hurt Sunday as an SUV carrying more than a dozen people during a suspected "smuggling event" crashed while fleeing from Border Patrol agents in South Texas, authorities said.

Sheriff Boyd said four people died at the scene and a fifth person died after being transported to a hospital, Fox News reported.

"The driver of this vehicle, we have handled before".

The border agent stopped one of the vehicles and another agent stopped a second one.

Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boy told WOAI the crash happened off Highway 85 in Big Wells at about noon. "We've seen this many, many times".

"This, I think, is a flawless example, of why are borders need to be secured", Boyd said. Officials said they believe the driver and passenger are both USA citizens. This includes the driver, who is believed to be a United States citizen.

The driver is now in custody with Homeland Security Investigations, a division of the Department of Homeland Security, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Stephens beat a mistake-prone Madison Keys 6-4, 6-4 on Thursday in the first all-American semifinal at Roland Garros since 2002. But Halep dug deep, squaring the final by winning the next two games, as Stephens fired a backhand wide on the first set point.

Some injured were taken by helicopter to San Antonio, about 90 miles northeast. He would not confirm if any of the patients had died.

The vehicle traveling more than 100 miles per hour when it crashed, according to local authorities.

At least five people were killed after an SUV carrying illegal immigrants crashed following a high-speed chase near the Texas-Mexico border, the sheriff said.

Boyd added: "If it can be built, I think it needs to be built".

The weight of the people causes the vehicle to become unstable and makes it easy for crashes to occur, Border Patrol officials previously told Breitbart Texas.

Yolanda Choates, a US Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman, directed questions to the Dimmit County Sheriff's Office.

It's not an uncommon sight for Boyd, who said Sunday it's very rare that a day goes by that his deputies do not get involved in a chase due to some form of smuggling from the border.
