Texas Truck Accident Kills 14

GOLIAD, Texas (AP) - A 14th person has died following the crash of a pickup truck overloaded with illegal immigrants in South Texas.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Greg Palmore says nine people remain hospitalized following the most recent death.

Palmore says the 11 men and three females who died include illegal immigrants from Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala.

The accident occurred in rural Goliad County, about 90 miles southeast of San Antonio Sunday evening. Authorities say 23 people were packed into the pickup when it ran off the road and crashed into trees.
