At least one person died and a dozen were thrown from a truck that suffered a traffic accident in Texas this Wednesday during an alleged illegal movement of undocumented immigrants along the border, according to local authorities.
Chris Olivare, spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety, explained on the social network Twitter that the crash took place in the city of La Joya, five miles from Mexico, after the driver “broke the law by ignoring a traffic light”.
“Due to excessive speed and recklessness, he crashed and overturned on a dirt road,” the spokesman said. Of the 12 people on board, 11 were thrown from the car, including the driver, and taken to hospital. The other passed away.
The authorities opened an investigation and promised to give “more details” of what happened throughout the afternoon of Wednesday.
