Authorities said five undocumented immigrants are dead following a chase involving Border Patrol agents Sunday afternoon.

A vehicle speeding from border agents flipped in Texas on Sunday, ejecting 12 of 14 passengers, with at least five dying.

The Chevrolet Suburban rolled over several times on a highway in Big Wells, Texas, around 12 p.m. local time on Sunday following a high-speed pursuit, officials told reporters.

Boyd said Border Patrol agents began chasing the SUV around noon and then Dimmit County Sheriff's deputy took over, CNN reported.

SATX-TV reported that a sixth person has possibly died in the hospital.

The crash occurred at about noon during a chase that reached speeds of 100 miles per hour, reports say. During a press conference, Boy said 14 people were in the vehicle, including the driver and passenger. Images from the scene showed the SUV badly wrecked in the middle of the road.


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

"Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of those who died in the crash", U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in its statement.

Boyd credited "good police work" for the reason why deputies started pursuing the vehicle adding that Boyd said human smuggling was a "real problem" in the area. The agency said multiple arrest were made in both vehicles.

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

The sheriff said he didn't know where the immigrants were from.
