Authorities: 13 dead after truck crashes in Texas
GOLIAD, Texas — Investigators say a single-vehicle wreck in rural South Texas has left 13 people dead and 10 hurt.
At least 23 people were crammed into the bed and cab of the pickup truck when it veered off a highway and crashed into trees Sunday evening in Berclair, about 100 miles southeast of San Antonio.
Border Patrol agents are assisting the Department of Public Safety in the investigation into the crash in Goliad (GOH'-lee-ad) County. It was not clear if those involved were illegal immigrants.
The Department of Public Safety said early Monday that two injured people died overnight at hospitals in Corpus Christi and San Antonio.
DPS dispatcher Cynthia Duffield (DUF'-eld) says investigators are not sure if the driver survived. She had no information on names and ages of the victims.
