1 dead, 7 hurt in South Texas wreck
PREMONT, TX -- Investigators say a rollover wreck in South Texas has left one person dead and seven hurt in a crash involving suspected illegal immigrants.
The Texas Department of Public Safety says the accident happened Wednesday morning near Premont, about 60 miles southwest of Corpus Christi.
A Texas trooper was trying to do a registration check on a northbound pickup truck when the vehicle sped away. DPS says the truck went out of control and rolled. Several other people in the vehicle declined medical treatment.
DPS did not immediately return messages Thursday to provide further details.
