"This is not unusual", Boyd said.

Images from the scene appeared to show a large four-door SUV-style vehicle badly wrecked in the middle of the road. The agent stopped one vehicle and called out a description of the other two, which prompted another agent to stop the second vehicle. Refusing to bow to police commands, the driver of the black SUV, carrying undocumented immigrants, continued to press the pedal to the metal, until the vehicle flipped off a highway in Big Wells, about 130 miles southwest of San Antonio. He said a Border Patrol agent initiated the pursuit before a unit for the sheriff's office took over. The passenger who was not ejected from the auto also was believed to be an American citizen, and in custody. The SUV turned over shortly after on Highway 85, near the town of Big Wells.

One of the drivers attempted to flee the scene and was chased by agents, US Border Patrol said in a statement. The driver was among those hospitalized, and a deputy who assisted the Border Patrol with the chase found the driver sitting upright in his seat and took him and the passenger into custody.

Dimmit County, located about 50 miles from the border with Mexico, sees significant traffic from Mexico, Boyd said.

Consumers’ Internet Use Could Change As ‘Net Neutrality’ Ends
Last week, Senate Democrats urged House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, to bring the issue to a vote on the House floor. The major issue with this tactic is that ISP customers already pay to get the whole internet at a certain speed.

Most of these chases are related to drug or human smuggling, Boyd added. At the same time, Boyd emphasized that the officers did nothing wrong and that high-speed chases around the state of Texas are a common occurrence. In 2015, an SUV packed with immigrants crashed during a pursuit, killing six passengers.

An SUV carrying 14 people rolled over and ejected 12 people who are believed to be illegal immigrants, according to a report from News4SanAntonio.

He added: 'This is a ideal example of why our borders need to be secure'. "I think we need a wall".
