A Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup carrying 23 people veered off a Texas highway and crashed late Sunday, killing 14 and injuring 9 others.
The pick-up truck was heading north on U.S. Highway 59 when it crashed into two large trees 100 miles southeast of San Antonio near the small town of Goliad, Texas.
“This is the most people I’ve seen in any passenger vehicle, and I’ve been an officer for 38 years,” Texas Highway Patrolman Gerald Bryant said, referring to the chaotic scene in Goliad County.
“It’s unknown whether or not (the victims) were illegal, but it’s possible,” Bryant told the AP.
The injured were taken to hospitals in San Antonio, Victoria and Corpus Christi.
