CORPUS CHRISTI Nearly 10 people were sent to the hospital after a truckload of undocumented immigrants collided with an SUV on Monday in Brooks County.
Emergency responders were called shortly after 11 a.m. to State Highway 285 about seven miles east of Falfurrias to find several people injured and a pickup on fire.
The truck carrying about seven undocumented immigrants made a left turn onto Farm-to-Market Road 1329, colliding almost head-on with an SUV carrying a 72-year-old Hebbronville woman and a male relative, said Trooper Benjamin Ramirez, of the Department of Public Safety.
Authorities also found several bundles of marijuana in the bed of the truck, Ramirez said.
Several undocumented immigrants, including the driver, fled into a brushy area. U.S. Border Patrol agents searched Monday for them.
Multiple people were taken by ambulance to area hospitals. The 72-year-old woman was taken by HALO-Flight to Christus Spohn Hospital Memorial in critical condition with multiple injuries, said Danny Oakes, flight paramedic.
The helicopter was then called to an Alice hospital to pick up a 19-year-old illegal immigrant suffering multiple fractures. He was flown to Christus Spohn Hospital Memorial in stable condition, Oakes said.
Names and ages of those involved were not available Monday.
Illegals with bundles of marijuana? NO WAY!!
Those damn SUVs....cause more problems.....!!
La Raza Rick will be down to visit tomorrow with college applications in hand for the young uns.
OR Romney the “Beaner”..
Doesn’t that technically make them Drug Smugglers?
johnny sutton will be there to press charges on the driver of the SUV. And if the old lady dies, he will call it a suicide.
He did mention in the last debate that he needs a new lawn crew.
Poor things obviously need every form of welfare and discount college tuitions and registered to vote 155 times each.
“The helicopter was then called to an Alice hospital to pick up a 19-year-old illegal immigrant suffering multiple fractures’
Did he prepay that?.... or is the Mexican Government paying it?....
Oh!... neither is?....
should have dropped his sorry ass over the boarder and left him there for the buzzards. More Freakin taxpayers money being forked over for the Illegals.
But they only wanted to make a living selling pot to kids that normally couldn’t afford it, and that racist white woman tried to prevent them from feeding their families, how cruel.

At least now they’ve been brought “out of the shadows”.
We’re they carrying applications for in-state tuition?
The bard once wrote: “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers”
With the corrupt press today, he would write: The first thing we do, let’s kill all the LSM.
This woman will get stiffed by insurance carriers. The illegals will get public funded medical care and legal help. Why don't prosecutors start suing people who hire illegals to pay for their costs that the taxpayer is subsidizing. That kind of prosecutor would get my vote Dem or Pub.
When will we start submitting their medical bills to the Mexican government?
Or at least deducting them from our annual handout to Mexico?
