Six suspected undocumented immigrants were killed and nine others injured when a truck being chased by police and U.S. Border Patrol officers crashed into a security barrier at a Navy facility in Texas, a base spokesman said Thursday.

Fifteen people were in the truck, with 10 crammed inside the cab, according to Naval Air Station Kingsville spokesman John Gagne.

The crash occurred late Wednesday when the extended-cab pickup slammed sped past an officer at the main gate at the base, south of Corpus Christi, Gagne told CNN.
