Immigrant chase ends with crash

Authorities are investigating an illegal immigrant chase that ended with a suspected smuggler crashing his car into a local business.

La Joya police attempted to pull over a car that officers believed picked up undocumented immigrants around 10:20 a.m. Monday.

The chase started off the 1000 block of U.S. Highway 83 but continued on Abrams Road.

The suspect crashed his car into a business off Hall Acres Road and Business 83.

Several illegal immigrants bailed out of the car but authorities caught five of them and turned them over to U.S. Border Patrol for deportation.

Police arrested the driver who is an American citizen and are looking to charge him.
