At one point, amid a chorus of cries, a male Border Patrol agent speaks up as well. Authorities believe the driver and one passenger are United States citizens and the 12 other passengers were undocumented immigrants, Boyd said.

"The vehicle was traveling around 100 miles an hour", Boyd said.

The crash took place in the city of Big Wells outside San Antonio after Border Patrol agents tried to stop the driver of an SUV, ABC television affiliate KSAT reported. Another occupant remains in critical condition with potentially life-threatening injuries.

The driver, a suspected smuggler and also believed to be a US citizen, survived the crash, according to NBC News.

"This, I think, is a ideal example, of why our borders need to be secured", Sheriff Boyd explained.

In all, 14 people were inside the SUV, including the driver and passenger, according to the sheriff. People may recall that, in that famous case about the Utah nurse who was arrested for refusing to draw a comatose patient, that comatose man was in the hospital because he was struck by a auto fleeing police. The driver was not ejected in the crash, and was sitting upright in his seat when a deputy took him into custody.

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

We were told by the sheriff's office all of the immigrants inside the SUV were from Mexico, but the Mexican Consulate says they can only confirm that a majority are from Mexico. Now, the U.S. administration has moved to prosecute anyone who seeks to enter the country illegally, which it says requires the children to be taken away.

In this image tweeted by David Caltabiano of KABB/WOAI, a heavily damaged SUV is seen on Texas Highway 85 in Big Wells, Texas, after crashing while carrying more than a dozen people fleeing from Border Patrol agents, Sunday, June 17, 2018.

The driver, who was not hurt, was arrested, Boyd said.

"I can go home with my auntie, at least", the girl said, proudly explaining that she memorized it.

The Border Patrol told the publication that it is cooperating with a tribal investigation, but did not say whether it was conducting an internal investigation.

"I'm doing all right, I'm just a little sore, really", Remes said Friday.

Customs and Border Patrol has said an agent saw what appeared to be three vehicles involved in a smuggling operation on a rural highway Sunday morning. "This is why we need more Republicans elected in November." - tweet Saturday.
