Crash Kills 2, Injures 12 near Premont

PREMONT - A crash killed 2 and injured 12 more people near Premont this morning as an officer checked out a suspicious truck.

A San Diego police officer tried pulling over the truck after he ran the license plate twice. The plate did not match the Ford 350. The driver of the truck took off, but ended up flipping on Highway 1329 near FM 716.

Halo Flight brought in 3 patients to area hospitals with serious injuries. Three more people were found hiding in the brush after the crash.

The area is a popular spot for coyotes moving illegal immigrants through South Texas onto larger cities across the state.
