An SUV “packed with undocumented immigrants” crashed Sunday during a high-speed chase about 100 miles southwest of San Antonio, Texas, according to the Washington Post.

Five people died and several others were injured in the incident. According to Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd, a total of 14 people were in the vehicle at the time.

Sheriff Boyd said that the vehicle was moving at more than 100 miles per hour when it left the roadway, “caught gravel and then tried to recorrect,” causing a rollover crash that ejected multiple victims from the vehicle. 

The driver was not ejected in the crash, and was taken into custody. 

The crash is under investigation by the Border Patrol, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and other federal agencies.

“Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of those who died in the crash,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in its statement.
