Border Patrol agents began chasing the vehicle around noon before a Dimmit County sheriff's deputy took over the chase, just west of Big Wells, Boyd said.

Hundreds of children are waiting away from their parents inside a Border Patrol holding facility in South Texas, with groups of 20 or more children to a single cage.

Meanwhile, the US Customs and Border Patrol Agency issued a statement expressing "deepest sympathies" to the families of those who died in the crash.
