6 suspected illegal immigrants dead in Texas crash

KINGSVILLE, Texas (AP) - Officials say six suspected illegal immigrants were killed and nine were injured when a truck being pursued by Kingsville police crashed into a security barrier at Naval Air Station Kingsville.

Jon Gagne, Naval Air Station Kingsville spokesman, says the gate guard tried to greet the vehicle as it approached Wednesday night but the driver sped through without stopping. Senior Cpl. Charlie Ramirez says popup barriers were activated beyond the gate and the vehicle crashed into them.

No victims have been identified. The conditions of the injured were not immediately available.

Kingsville is about 40 miles southwest of Corpus Christi.
