Six suspected illegal immigrants were killed and five others seriously injured Wednesday night when their SUV crashed into an irrigation ditch during a police chase in Texas, according to reports.

Police started chasing the SUV, which was reportedly smuggling more than a dozen Central American and Mexican migrants, after the driver fled a traffic stop about 20 miles west of Corpus Christi, according to Reuters.

Police called off the chase but didn’t realize the SUV had crashed until drivers reported people wandering on the road.
