14 killed, 9 hurt in crash of truck of illegal aliens

McALLEN, Texas -- A pickup overloaded with illegal immigrants veered off a highway and crashed into trees in south Texas, killing at least 14 and injuring nine, authorities said Monday.

Federal immigration agents were looking into the human smuggling aspect of the case, while public safety authorities investigated the cause of the Sunday evening crash in Goliad County, about 150 miles northeast of the border with Mexico.

The pickup was crammed with 23 immigrants from Mexico and Central America.
