Boyd said the driver of the Suburban was also injured and was flown to a San Antonio hospital.
The Border Patrol said in a statement Sunday night that two other vehicles had been travelling alongside the SUV earlier in the day.
The driver is now in custody with Homeland Security Investigations, a division of the Department of Homeland Security, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety. "This is I think a ideal example of why our borders need to be secured". Fourteen people were inside, including the driver and passenger. Boyd tells San Antonio television station WOAI a driver and one passenger are believed to be USA citizens.
Local law enforcement officers were familiar with the driver, who was in the area last week to either pick up undocumented immigrants or to scout, the sheriff said.
The other 12 passengers were undocumented immigrants, Boyd said.
The crash happened in Dimmit County, Texas about 120 miles southwest of San Antonio. He would not confirm if any of the patients had died.
Boyd credited "good police work" for the reason why deputies started pursuing the vehicle adding that Boyd said human smuggling was a "real problem" in the area. But along with that, there needs to be cameras.
Boyd said Border Patrol agents began chasing the SUV around noon and then Dimmit County Sheriff's deputy took over, CNN reported. Dimmit County is directly north of Webb County and east of Maverick County, which border Mexico.
