Migrants Killed in Possible Human Smuggling Rollover Crash

Officials say the vehicle was traveling over 100 miles per hour when it ran off the road and caught gravel, causing it to roll over.

Boyd said there were a total of 14 people in the SUV, including the driver who was not seriously injured. Boy believes the driver was scouting the area to try and pick up immigrants.

Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd said four people died at the scene off Highway 85 in Big Wells, Texas, at about noon, and one other person died at the hospital.

Four people were pronounced dead at the scene, officials said. He also cited this as a reason why it is important to build a wall to secure the border with Mexico. The vehicle was traveling around 100 miles per hour, according to Boyd.

5 immigrants killed in rollover crash in Dimmit, Texas.

The passenger, also believed to be a US citizen, is now in custody.

Rescued migrant ship arrives in Spain
The first group of migrants, which included 274 people, arrived to the Spanish port at approximately 7:30 a.m. France will also accept a number of the migrants, Spain's deputy prime minister Carmen Calvo said yesterday.

The other 12 passengers were undocumented immigrants, 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. "There needs to be sensors".

When asked why Border Patrol agents started the chase, Boyd said, "It's called good police work".

"Border patrol was pursuing a vehicle, a Chevrolet Suburban, and one of my deputies assisted and took over the pursuit just west of Big Wells", Boyd said.

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