Boyd said a Dimmitt County Sheriff's deputy took over the chase just west of Big Wells, but the vehicle, which was traveling around 100 miles per hour, ran off the road onto the gravel before flipping several times when it tried to get back on the roadway, the sheriff said.

The Border Patrol began pursuing the SUV at about 11 a.m., when an agent spotted what he believed to be a "smuggling event" involving three vehicles on a rural highway about 125 miles southwest of San Antonio, according to a statement from U.S. Customs and Border Protection. One died on the way to the hospital. In Sunday's crash, Boyd said the driver of the SUV survived and was taken into custody.

Most of the occupants were believed to be living in the country without legal permission.

Some of the victims were flown by helicopter to San Antonio for medical treatment, local media said. "It's a problem. This is, I think, a ideal example of why our borders need to be secure".
