CASA GRANDE, Ariz. – Three people are dead and another three are in serious to critical condition following a Border Patrol pursuit.

The driver of an SUV fleeing from Border Patrol agents Wednesday afternoon crashed into a wall. Among those seriously injured is a 9-year-old girl.

Border Patrol officials say they saw five people get into a vehicle with a driver in it after agents spotted the individuals in the desert.

Border agents attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle but the driver sped off before crashing into a wall about eight miles into the pursuit on Florence Road in southern Casa Grande.

Border Patrol has not confirmed whether the occupants in the SUV were undocumented immigrants.
