Fox News reports a tragic scene unfolded this afternoon near the Texas-Mexican border as "12 people were ejected from an SUV carrying illegal immigrants after it crashed following a high-speed chase with U.S. Border Patrol vehicles".

The SUV carrying 14 people went out of control at more than 100 miles per hour and overturned on Texas Highway 85, ejecting most of the occupants, Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd said.

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

Four people were pronounced dead at the scene, others were taken to area hospitals. Officials said they believe the driver is a US citizen.

"This is not unusual", Boyd said.

India's Modi hopes historic cricket match will boost ties with Afghanistan
The Test marks the induction of Afghanistan , the 12th Test-playing nation, to the highest platform in cricket. No wonder the iconic CLR James line is still so relevant "What do they know of Cricket who only Cricket Know".

This SUV was packed with undocumented immigrants as it crashed trying to escape border patrol.

Four people died at the scene and a fifth died later, KSAT 12 television of San Antonio reported.

Several people were arrested after another agent stopped the second vehicle, but the third vehicle didn't stop when an agent tried to pull it over, Customs and Border Protection said.

Boyd said his officers have dealt with the driver before, adding he was scouting the area earlier to try and pick up immigrants. "It's a problem. This is, I think, a ideal example of why our borders need to be secure".

It's not an uncommon sight for Boyd, who said Sunday it's very rare that a day goes by that his deputies do not get involved in a chase due to some form of smuggling from the border.

Authorities are investigating the scene where a vehicle full of undocumented immigrants being chased by Border Patrol agents crashed.
