    Thursday afternoon on November 29, 3 people were killed in a fatal car crash. The driver ran over the spikes and crashed on a highway in Southern California. Authorities state that the people in the truck were trying to flee the border patrol officers.

    According to United States Customs and The Border Protection, the officers turned the emergency lights on and chased the pickup truck on Interstate 8 near Boulevard, California at 4:30 p.m.. Authorities believe that the pickup truck had been illegally driven over the southern border and crashed through an “iron bar vehicle barrier”.

    The truck reached speeds of over 100 miles per hour, weaving between cars and bypassing others on the side of the highway. The driver drove over spikes that the border patrol placed on the road, as said by the California Highway Patrol. A mile later,  the truck spun out of control and flipped over. This ejected 9 people sitting in the truck’s bed.

     The woman seated inside the passenger seat did not have a seat belt on and died along with 2 others riding in the bed. A spokesman for Customs and Border Protection says that 7 people were taken to the hospital with multiple serious injuries.

    The driver, a U.S citizen whose name has not yet been released, was the only one wearing a seat belt. The California Highway Patrol took the man into custody. It was not made clear if he was charged and the identities of the others in the vehicle are unknown.
