3 Dead, 12 Hurt When SUV Carrying 19 Suspected Illegals Crashes Monday, July 09, 2007 SAN ANTONIO -- A sport utility vehicle packed with at least 19 suspected illegal immigrants crashed after a high-speed chase with authorities, killing three immigrants and sending 12 others to hospitals. The chase started in Natalia, about 30 miles southwest of San Antonio, and reached San Antonio around 2 a.m. at speeds over 100 mph, said police Sgt. Gabe Trevino. The SUV blew a tire and rolled several times, ejecting the occupants. At least two people fled on foot before being caught with the aid of a police helicopter, Trevino said. The driver was taken into custody and could be charged with capital murder, Trevino said. San Antonio police could not say on Monday what started the chase. Natalia police did not return a phone message.

19 people in an SUV! That is crazy.

Gee Wally..... There's Taco Meat all over the Freeway!!!

19 people in an SUV! That is crazy. Yeah, vehicles are extremely difficult to control when they are packed with 20 or more little brown people. But then again, they were just late for a job interview, that's all.

Last year, my mom was driving from TX to IN. An Suv rolled in front of her. She said it was like a circus. People crawling out of the car. She said they ran into the woods. She also said the sadest part was a man was carrying a baby that looked like it hadn't made it. My mom had to pass it. She then pulled over and cried for about 30 mins. Of course she didn't tell me until she made it to IN. I would have driven up and rode with her the rest of the way. That is just crazy. Drives me nuts, when I see a car packed full of adults and kids. And 9 times out of 10, the kids are not in car seats...UGH!!

Regardless of one’s feelings towards the illegal immigration issue, I find it appallingly insensitive that anyone would make a joke out of the loss of three lives and the injury to twelve others in that SUV. Instead we should be praying for them and their families.

I worked a wreck a few years back when I was on the ambulance.....was a Chevy extended cab truck (not a quad cab) and it had 9 hispanics in it i think and they lost control and it rolled. When we got there the bodies were just thrown all over. They all lived but one lady lost her whole arm when the truck rolled. Very sad and crazy they think that could possibly be safe.

I find it appallingly insensitive that anyone would make a joke out of the loss of three lives and the injury to twelve others in that SUV. Have to agree with you Chez. I wasn't sure how to put that in words. Thank you for standing up and saying so.

Instead we should be praying for them and their families. Sorry, but it was their own fault as they chose to enter OUR country illegally, and then ran from the law.....Oh, I guess I should pray that they win their lawsuit against the Ford Motor Co. and Firestone Tires....

It is very sad. 

BumDitty --- 14 years ago -

No doubt they're Democrats. They drive like Kennedy! It is really sad that our tax dollars are going to pay for their medical bills, instead of being used by truly needy U.S. Citizens. That really IS sad! 

Catgirl --- 14 years ago -

killing three immigrants and sending 12 others to hospitals. How will they ever be able to pay for their hospital care??? 

zɹossıʞs --- 14 years ago -

Why not send them to a hospital.. in Mexico? 

Catgirl --- 14 years ago -

Hey Skissorz! Where have you been?

...sending you a PM 

bbjones --- 14 years ago -

Just as I find it appallingly insensitive that someone would continually use the deaths of our brave soldiers to make a political statement.

Hardshell? Are you freaking serious?

Gee Wally..... There's Taco Meat all over the Freeway!!! Thats funny - who here honestly didn't get a laugh out of that joke? 

Hardshell --- 14 years ago -

Bluesky, Hardshell? Are you freaking serious? I just saw the photo on your profile.....are you serious? 

Catgirl --- 14 years ago -

bluesky -- Hardshell? Are you freaking serious? I just saw the photo on your profile......are you serious? OMG! bluesky I find your profile pic to be funny too. 

Hardshell --- 14 years ago -

Thats funny - who here honestly didn't get a laugh out of that joke? That there was funny....I don't care who you are..... Look, I don't wish harm on anyone, and the physical injuries that the survivors sustained are probably horrible......but,come on, 19 guys piled into an SUV....doing 100 mph? Hey, at least no innocent folks were hurt..... 

ChezML --- 14 years ago -

They are as much a part of humanity as you, even though they are "little brown people" as you called them. When you diminish the importance of their deaths and injuries with extremely tastless jokes you are denying them their dignity and personhood. They are someone's sons,daughters, mothers or fathers. And they have probably left children behind. The dead and injuried and their families deserve our prayers and compassion, not our bias and scorn. Ask yourself- what sort of values do you want this community, Kingwood and KU, to embody: religious principles such as charity, compassion, fellowship, etc. or racial hatred and bigotry. 

zɹossıʞs --- 14 years ago -

I'm sorry, but all people were NOT created alike. Get beyond the sentimental BS and ask yourself, honestly, what value does a person bring to society? The question is not meant to be pointed only at 'minorities,' in fact, there are plenty of morons who are legal US citizens as well. 

Hardshell --- 14 years ago -

Hey Chexmix, You apparently continue to overlook the fact that they did this to themselves while committing a crime. Sorry, but that fact deserves "bias and scorn".....and a little late night humor. And as with most of you Liberal nut jobs, you think that resorting to the race card somehow makes illegals martyrs. The entire illegal alien movement is fueled by the biggest racist and intolerant organizations that have ever existed: La Raza (The Race) MEChA, Mexica Movement, Aztlan, LULAC etc. etc....... Show me 19 white dudes packed in an SUV like a can of tamales, and I'll have a laugh at that as well..... 

amb07 --- 14 years ago -

If they are stupid enough not to wear seatbelts, and then run from the law, why should they get sympathy? I am grateful they didn't hit and kill an INNOCENT person. What morons. 

Catgirl --- 14 years ago -

There are videos & TV Shows out there for laughs under the the title "Dumbest Criminals". I wonder if they will make the list. I think those videos/TV Shows are funny too. lol 

lilmommy --- 14 years ago -

Look the loss of any life is a shame. Oh, and I am a liberal nut job. LOL But they did choose to disobey the law.. Not wearing seatbelts alone makes them wrong in the eyes of the law, not to mention packing that many people in a vehicle.... When we were leaving the Houston area because of Rita I was amazed at just how many hispanics let their children ride without seat belts... Call that a racist comment if you wish... But I couldn't believe all of the cars.. My kids were buckled in.. I was trying to merge into a lane while following my hubby and was fighting for that position with a red Chevy... This Chevy had about 8 hispanics in the car plus 3 babies... We kept fighting to get in front of each other.. I finally backed off when I realized they didn't even have enough love for their own children to buckle them in and keep them safe. I'm sure they had little regard for me, either. 

Setta-Don-Naw --- 14 years ago -

They sure shouldn't come here "illegally" OR run from OUR law enforcement and thank the LORD that no one else became involved innocently in their accident..."however"...when things like this happen with illegals...I can't help but think how it must feel to be "born" "into" a country that is so horrible you'd risk your life to get out of it! It's not right for them to come over here to "take over" things and work without their US card etc...no...but how awful would it feel to just be cursed for life to be "forced" to live and work for nothing and raise your family in poverty and misery, only because you were "born' there?...so sad to me...yet...there are still laws to be obeyed...and consequences if they are not! 

Catgirl --- 14 years ago -

In Mexico you can pile people as many as you can fit in a vehicle, no seat belts nor car seats are required. You should ride a bus in Mexico, you will shit your pants every time. 

zɹossıʞs --- 14 years ago -

Just some FYI: Mexico now lays claim to the richest man in the world who surpassed Bill Gates recently by $15 BILLION. He owns all the telecom infrastructure of Mexico, and makes money every time anyone (including illegals) call into, out of, or within Mexico. This is pretty much the equivalent of one person owning AT&T in the US (before the breakup).

Okay, I will explain some things. This man often appears at the computer classes I teach. He has experience with lower income Hispanics. The reason why seatbelt/occupancy laws are not followed is because very few rules exist in rural Mexico. This is the culture that the immigrants (especially including illegal immigrants) are born into. Homeowner associations, municipal beauty laws, and safety laws have no effect/significance in many Latin American countries. Many immigrants do not know better, and are shocked to discover cultural differences. Now, does this (and Mexico's suffering social ills and corruption) mean that the illegal immigrants deserved to die/the illegal immigrants' deaths should be made fun of? What if the driver was an illegal who should not drive? Does this mean the passengers deserved to die? Should the deaths of the passengers be made fun of? No. 

Vicman --- 14 years ago -

By the way, as for my personal opinions about illegal immigrants: The status quo has a reason for being there. On one hand, guest worker programs and legalization are not solutions because companies pay illegal immigrants under the table to provide illegal lower wages. If the companies had legalized workers, they would have to pay the legal workers standard wages, which reduces competitive ability. On the other hand, sealing the borders and stopping all illegal immigrants won't work either as the companies will not allow for that to happen; illegal immigrants allow for companies to be more competitive. So, what is the root of the problem? It's not the illegal immigrants. The root: the companies.

So, what is the root of the problem? It's not the illegal immigrants. The root: the companies. ...especially Ford.....since they obviously didn't design 20 seats into their Expedition model....
