Crash Kills 6, Injured 9

Crash Kills 6, A crash killed 6 people and injured 9 others in Texas after police chased a truck said to be crammed with undocumented immigrants. Police said there were 15 people in the truck that slammed into a security barrier at a Navy facility in Texas. Ten people were in the truck’s cab while another five were under a tarp in the truck’s bed, said John Gagne, spokesman for Naval Air Station Kingsville. The chase started late on Wednesday when the pickup sped past an officer at the base’s man gate, prompting a chase from police. Guards at the base put a pop-up barrier outside a second security post, and the GMC truck slammed into it at full speed, causing the crash the killed 6. Police said that wasn’t the intention. “That’s exactly what the barrier is designed to prevent,” Gagne said, referring to the driver’s behavior. “It’s quite possible this guy didn’t even know where he was.” At close to 12:33 am, the Department of Public Safety was called to the scene of the crash
