At least five people were killed after an SUV carrying illegal immigrants crashed following a high-speed chase near the Texas-Mexico border, the sheriff said.

SUV following the aftermath of a chase with Border Patrol agents and sheriff's deputies.

U.S. Border Patrol said in a statement that one of its agents noticed three vehicles traveling together on a rural highway and believed a "smuggling event" was taking place. Investigators have said the vehicle was carrying 14 people and traveling more than 100 miles per hour when it lost control and overturned on Texas Highway 85 near Big Wells.

Four were pronounced dead at the scene midday Sunday. A fifth person died at a hospital. A Dimmit County Sheriff's Office deputy took over the pursuit, the statement reads.

The person who allegedly recorded the audio, handed it over to USA civil rights lawyer Jennifer Harbury, who has worked in the Rio Grande Valley near the Mexican border for 40 years.

The passenger, also believed to be a US citizen, is now in custody.

An estimated 2,000 children have been separated from their parents between mid-April and the end of May.

Most of the SUV's occupants were ejected.
