In a later interview, Boyd said the vehicle reached 100 miles per hour before the driver lost control and crashed.

"We've seen this many, many times, in not only this county but other counties along the border", Boyd said.

Some of the injured people were taken by helicopter to San Antonio, about 90 miles northeast.

Multiple people inside the Suburban were ejected as the vehicle rolled, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Border patrol agents use all-terrain vehicles (ATV) to search for illegal immigrants along the US.

When asked why Border Patrol agents started the chase, Boyd said, "It's called good police work".

A criminal complaint said the driver in that case admitted to investigators that he traveled from Laredo to San Antonio.

"This, I think, is a ideal example, of why are borders need to be secured", Boyd said. He would not confirm if any of the patients had died. The vehicle was traveling around 100 miles per hour, the sheriff said. All five people who died were undocumented.

Boyd added that a wall is not the only answer. But along with that, there needs to be cameras.

It's not an uncommon sight for Boyd, who said Sunday it's very rare that a day goes by that his deputies do not get involved in a chase due to some form of smuggling from the border.

"The Border Patrol was pursuing a vehicle and one of my deputies assisted in the pursuit, and took over the pursuit just west of Big Wells", Mr. Boyd told KSAT-12.

Representatives for both U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Dimmit County Sheriff's Office did not immediately respond to HuffPost's request for comment.
