11 dead in Goliad County (Texas) crash
San Antonio Express News ^ | July 22, 2012 | Eva Ruth Moravec

At least 11 people were killed and a dozen others injured Sunday in a single-vehicle crash near Berclair in Goliad County, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Around 7 p.m., the driver of a Ford F-250 super-duty pickup veered off of U.S. 59 while heading north and crashed in unincorporated Goliad County, DPS spokesman Trooper Gerald Bryant said.

"The truck left the roadway and struck two very large trees," Bryant said.

A man who claimed to have been the truck's driver was ejected but is alive, Bryant said, and six others inside the cab of the truck were pronounced dead at the scene. Another five victims outside of the pickup also died at the scene, he said.

According to Bryant, a total of 23 people of "a variety of ages," including some children, were in the vehicle. The victims have not yet been identified, he said.

It's not yet known for sure in this case, but similar incidents are almost always involve undocumented Democrats.

Back in the day I worked as a forensic photographer and shot a number of automobile accident scenes with multiple fatalities. Anybody who makes light of this is sick.

San Antonio.

That would make it the Los Zetas controlled smugglers.

It may be that the Sinaloa Cartel arranged the ‘crash’. They are trying to win the contest to see who gets to run the US-Mexico border.

The Sinaloa have control of half of Arizona already, so they are one up on the Los Zetas. Besides, Obama sent a ton of new FBI agents to track down and kill just the Los Zetas gangs. Soon, problems along the Texas border will cease as all flow will be through Arizona.

I think it is because there were 23 people in a single pick-up truck.

“Anybody who makes light of this is sick.”

What appears to be “making light” is probably just someone’s way of coping with the ongoing situation down on the border.

If we were all to act in unison in an outwardly “appropriate” fashion, would it change anything?

After about the umpteenth time that something like this has happened, who in their right mind can react as though it’s been unheard of until now?

OK. I live in Goliad County. Why don’t you come down here and pick up the tab for the autopsy, helo flights, medical care and emergency services.

Our county will foot the bill for these illegals wrecking in this county and not your county, that is what is sick.

Head on down here, I will show you where to pay up.

This reminds me of a Joke told to me by a buddy of mine, Gonzo, an American of Mexican descent.
Q: 'Do you know why Santa Anna had 2,400 Soldiers at the Alamo?' Response: 'No, why?'
A: 'He only had Five Chevy's!'
............... (bada-bing. rimshot!)
Good ole Gonzo, he knew a bunch of Mexican and Illegal jokes I never heard before.

Back story:
It turned out that Gonzo was from my old hood in Chi, he went to the same HS as my wife and I did, we had some of the same teachers, and him and I even had a mutual friend (who died in VN on his 2nd tour) -- even though I'm a 'tad older' than Gonzo and so was our mutual friend. Gonzo lived in an area of 'the hood' that was called 'Little Mexico' (like Little Italy or Chinatown is).

But he no longer lived there, he moved to the Western edge of Chi and lived there with his mother, whom he supported. Anyway, one day I asked him why he moved out of the old hood.
He said without blinking or a bit of sarcasm -- "To get away from the F__king Mexicans!"

This is why I support a ban on pickup trucks and SUVs - they’re tools of death on our highways.

Terrible news, more killed in a single vehicle accident than a recent mass shooting.

Kinda makes a person go hmmmm, why doesn’t it get even a fraction of the coverage?

Will the POTUS even make a comment, will the MSM puppets bring in grief experts for the next week?

No way in hell.

BTW, I used to live in Texas.

Thanks. I just started reading another thread about this incident. Looks like the human smugglers are getting more illegals into our country.

How does a truck full of illegals get that far north without detection? We can’t leave the valley without going thru a check point. I know there are back roads that avoid the checkpoints, but those roads are heavily patroled by Border Patrol.

We must ban high-capacity cars, trucks and SUVs. Only “friendly” looking cars will now be allowed. /sarc

Last I heard 14 have now died. This will get about the same amount of coverage as a little black girl getting killed selling lemonade.
