2 Men Dead, Woman Injured After Border Patrol Pursuit Ends in Crash in San Diego

 
SAN DIEGO, CA (February 20, 2019)– Two men were killed and a woman was injured after a border patrol chase Tuesday night ended in a crash involving a big rig on Otay Mesa Road near Sanyo Avenue.
 
Just after 5:00 p.m., a man and a woman were seen on camera crossing the border illegally before meeting a driver of a stolen Volvo at Otay Mesa and Alter roads. Soon after, three people inside the Volvo fled, prompting agents nearby to try pulling the car over.
 
However, the vehicle sped up to speeds faster than 100 miles per hour before it hit a semi-truck near Sanyo Avenue, less than a half-mile away.
 
The impact sheared the roof off the vehicle and sent the car into a ravine. The car was found 20 feet below the roadway on its wheels.
 
Two men in the driver and front passenger seats died at the scene, according to police. The woman had to be extricated from the vehicle before being life-flighted to a nearby hospital.
 
Neither CBP nor the San Diego Police Department had information about how the Volvo came to be stolen. Police said they ran the plates and found it was reported stolen.
 
CBP will be investigating how the two people were able to cross the border and the events leading to the crash.
