At least five people were killed when an SUV fleeing U.S. Border
Patrol agents crashed near Big Wells, about 100 miles southwest of San
Antonio, according to Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd.
Boyd said the SUV was packed with 14 people
and that 12 of those were ejected when the driver lost control and the
vehicle flipped about noon on Texas 85.
"From what we can tell the vehicle ran off
the road and caught gravel and then tried to recorrect," Boyd said,
adding that "caused the vehicle to turn over several times."
Boyd said the chase, which also involved a DCSO deputy, reached speeds of more than 100 mph.
