Four people were pronounced dead at the scene, others were taken to area hospitals.

Five undocumented immigrants were killed when an SUV they were in crashed by being chased by border patrol agents near Big Wells, Texas, June 17, 2018. Boyd told San Antonio television station WOAI the driver and one passenger were believed to be USA citizens.

The crash was reported when Border Patrol agents attempted to stop an SUV in Dimmit County, reports said.

The sheriff said he hadn't spoken to Border Patrol on the exact cause of the pursuit and nature of the crash.

The SUV went out of control at more than 100 miles per hour and overturned on Texas Highway 85, ejecting those inside, Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd said.

The accident happened before noon Sunday off Highway 85 in Big Wells, about 130 miles southwest of San Antonio.

According to the Associated Press, a fifth passenger died after arriving at the hospital.

Footage of the scene showed a charred Chevrolet SUV and several law enforcement vehicles.

Boyd said the driver of the SUV survived and was taken into custody.

When asked why Border Patrol agents started the chase, Boyd said, "It's called good police work".

Boyd told WOAI a wall needs to be build because illegal immigration is "a real problem" in the area.

'We've seen this many, many times, in not only this county but other counties along the border, ' Boyd said. Dimmit County is directly north of Webb County and east of Maverick County, which border Mexico.
