Brazen Illegals Threatening Safety of Themselves, Border Patrol

Crashes involving illegal immigrants are not that uncommon...

(John RansomHeadline USA) Fifteen illegal immigrants and their reckless driver were injured after they engaged in a high-speed escape attempt from sheriff’s deputies near the US southern border.

The people were injured when their truck rolled over in Bexar County, after engaging in a two-county chase by sheriff’s deputies, who had previously pulled the truck over around 8 p.m. in Medina County near San Antonio, reported NBC News Dallas Fort Worth.

The crash in Bexar County left two people in critical condition who were transported by helicopter to a San Antonio hospital, said the NBC station in Dallas-Fort Worth.

The driver of the vehicle, who is from San Antonio, had a gun in the truck and is facing several charges relating to the accident in addition to the possession of the firearm, said the Associated Press.

One suspect fled the vehicle during the traffic stop, which prompted the truck to take off trying to avoid detection by the officers, said CBS News.

Crashes involving illegal immigrants are not that uncommon either. In 2021, at least 54 illegal immigrants died in Mexico, when a truck that was carrying over 100 illegal immigrants overturned.

At the time, an illegal immigrant advocacy group said that over 3,500 people have died on the US border during illegal immigration operations, according to the New York Times.

There have been 149 on-duty deaths by border patrol agents, according to the website Officer Down, which keeps a map of such deaths. About half of those deaths involve a vehicle, where officers either die inside their own vehicles from accidents or are struck by a vehicle.

Border Patrol Agent Donna Doss was struck by a vehicle on I-20 in 2019 as she investigated reports of an individual being in the country illegally, said the law-enforcement website.

In El Cajon, California, a driver who tried to escape Border Patrol lost control of his vehicle as it approached 100 mph and was killed this week, said NBC News San Diego.
