High Speed Chase and Crash Injures 5 Illegal Aliens


SONORA, TX – Ten illegal aliens were involved in a high speed chase throughout Sonora and were apprehended after a scary crash in Interstate 10 west.  Five of the illegals were injured. 

According to the Sutton County Sheriff's office at 9:34am this morning, a Sonora PD Officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop for a speed violation, on a Chevrolet Silverado pickup on Hwy 277 S. near the intersection of S. Crockett. The vehicle turned NB on Crockett and came to a stop in the Car Quest Parking lot.

As the Officer attempted to make contact with the driver, it fled the scene & led Sonora PD, DPS Troopers, Sutton County Sheriff's Office & Texas Game Warden on a pursuit through Sonora to Interstate 10 where they entered the Interstate going West Bound.

The pursuit ended in the pickup crashing, on the North Service Road around the 392 mile marker. The vehicle was loaded with 10 illegal aliens, plus the driver, in the pickup and bed of the pickup, resulting in 5 injuries. The 5 injured occupants were transported to LMH for medical attention, the 5 remaining illegals were detained and turned over to Border Patrol, and the driver was arrested and booked into the Sutton County Jail.

biden should be very proud of himself for causing this massive surge of illegal aliens. He's trying to secure his future votes. All he needs now is for non citizens to be able to vote. Don't be surprised when the demoncrats try to pass that law.

Post some proof that anything Biden did directly caused them to come over. Truth is they have been coming over in higher and higher numbers for years (highest on record from the last 5 years is in 2019, under trump.) It is higher this year because of covid and the natural disasters that hit central America last year and the poverty and economic situation those caused.



Take a look at the graphs on that last link.
