5 dead after car flips in Border Patrol chase in TX

"We've seen this many, many times, in not only this county but other counties along the border", Boyd said.

Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd said the SUV crashed off Highway 85 in Big Wells, Texas, according to News 4.

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

Four of the migrants reportedly died at the scene, with a fifth later dying at the hospital.

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

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

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

This SUV was packed with undocumented immigrants as it crashed trying to escape border patrol. "It's a problem. This is, I think, a ideal example of why our borders need to be secure".

"The vehicle ran off the road and caught gravel and then tried to recorrect and then caused the vehicle to turn over several times", Boyd told CNN.

In a later interview, Boyd said the vehicle reached 100 miles per hour before the driver lost control and crashed.

"Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of those who died in the crash", The Border Patrol said in the statement.
