KINGSVILLE (March 21, 2013)--Six suspected illegal immigrants were killed and nine others were injured when a truck that Kingsville police were pursuing crashed into a security barrier at Naval Air Station Kingsville, authorities said.

Senior Cpl. Charlie Ramirez says popup barriers were activated beyond the gate and the vehicle crashed into them.
The victims have not been identified.
