Carnage: 9 Dead as Van Crammed with Illegal Immigrants Crashes
Nine died, six were injured and two escaped from the 10:30 p.m. crash in Palmview, police say.
"The bodies, believed to be those of illegal immigrants, remained scattered on and along the eastbound frontage road hours after a Chevrolet Astro Van rolled over several times following a traffic stop late Tuesday night," the McAllen Monitor reported.
Police said the van and another vehicle had been pulled over for inspection. The other vehicle took off and the van followed, but it lost control and rolled over several times. Police were not chasing the vehicles yet, according to reports.
No names were released:
