Thirteen illegal aliens killed when their Ford pickup crahed. The eight of the illegal aliens where dead when Emergency services arrived, ten others where injuried. The truck was crammed with nearly 2 dozen illegal Aliens and operated far beyond the safe legal passenger limit. The Ford F250 pickup had multiple occupants in both the front and the cab and the bed of the pickup when it slammed into a pair of trees. It was north bound on U.S. Highway 59 when it left the road near the town of Goliad.
The victims whos ages and names have not been released where identified as illegal immigrants when Customs and Border Patrol where called to the scene by Texas State Police. Most of the victims where airlifted to Corpus Cristi Texas, unfortunately at the expense of the U.S. Tax Payer. Another example of how lax immigrantion enforcement laws in the United States contribute to the loss of life not only Americans, but illegal aliens.
