    How in the hell do you get 23 people in an F-250 and the truck is able to move...its only a ford after all....

    All kidding aside this was an incredibly stupid stunt on the victims part. I would say its a miracle that only 11 people were killed. Its a travisty non the less but people really need to start thinking before they act. BYG

    I think the dead count is up to 11 now according to this morning tv news. I caught the tail end of it only.

    Of course the driver of the vehicle survived. I am sure this is going to cost him more than he was being paid.

    BBERCLAIR - Fourteen people were killed and nine injured in a one-vehicle wreck in Goliad County near the Bee County line.

    Eleven males and three females from Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico were among those who died, said Gregory Palmore, of the Office of Public Affairs-U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, also known as ICE. The identities and ages have not yet been released, but two of the deceased are confirmed to be under 18 years old.

    The driver of the 2000 Ford F-250 extended-cab pick-up truck, who was one of the 11 who died at the scene, was heading toward Goliad and struck a tree about three miles south of Farm-to-Market Road 1351 about 6:30 p.m., Department of Public Safety troopers said.

    The right front tire appeared to have lost its tread about 300 yards before impact. The driver veered to the right side of the road and crashed into the trees, said DPS Lt. Glen Garrett. The highway's speed limit is 75 mph and Garrett said the truck was traveling at least that fast.

    Of the 14 who died, six were inside the cab. Five of the passengers who were riding in the bed were killed after they were ejected. Three additional passengers later died in hospitals.

    The top of the extended cab truck had to be cut away by firefighters from Goliad and Beeville.

    "It was not a bloody scene, which indicates they died on impact," DPS Trooper said.

    The injured and deceased were men, women and children with the youngest being about 8 years old, DPS Trooper said.

    Officials said they appeared to be illegal immigrants and U.S. Border Patrol agents were assisting on the scene.

    Society heaves a mighty "meh" over horrific highway carnage.

    But let some whacko kill fewer than that with a firearm and they scream for gun bans.

    One liberal is screaming for vidco game bans. Others want violent movie bans so we can watch nothing but Bambi- oope, there's violence in it too. The bottom line is that liberals always play politics with every tragedy. If the guy had bombed the theater they would still be babbling for guns bans.
