02-03-2021

Overhead video in Imperial County showed the brutal aftermath of the crash, with the jack-knifed semitruck smashed into the left side of a Ford Expedition. Both came to a rest off the side of a rural road about 10 miles north of the border.
Hospital and police officials gave slightly different tallies of the injured and dead in the incident.
California Highway Patrol Border Division Chief Omar Watson said at a morning briefing there were 25 occupants in the Expedition during the crash and that 13 died, including the driver.
"It would be premature of me to speculate on what happened at this collision. The important thing is that 13 people died in this crash," he said at a second media update. "We owe it to the families of those that were killed and injured as well at the public to conduct a complete and thorough investigation."
A Ford Expedition typically can safely seat up to eight people. But this vehicle didn't have rear seats, Watson said.
"I don't know if they were cut out or removed, I'm not sure, but they were not in the vehicle," Watson said. "What it indicates is that there were not enough safety belts for the passengers."
At least 10 Mexican nationals were killed, the Mexican Consulate said in a statement.
Consulate officials said they were saddened by the news and are working to confirm the nationalities of the other three passengers who died. Mexican officials will provide assistance to the families affected by the crash, the statement said.
Watson said earlier it is unknown where all the people in the SUV are from. Some didn't have identification. The driver was from the Mexican city of Mexicali, he said.
"We are close to the border, so we have people who come back and forth daily for work," he said.
US authorities are working with the Mexican consulate to determine who was in the vehicle and to notify next of kin.
Special agents from the Homeland Security Investigations office in San Diego are investigating to see if human smuggling was involved, a US Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman told CNN in a statement.
Watson described a gruesome scene in which some occupants were ejected from the vehicle and died, while others were found dead within the SUV. He said 12 people died at the collision site and one person died at a hospital.
Police received a call about the crash at about 6:15 a.m. At the time of the crash, the semitruck was traveling north on State Road 115 and the Expedition was traveling west on Norrish Road. Watson said it was unknown whether the Expedition stopped at a stop sign, but the SUV entered the intersection in front of the semitruck, leading to the collision.
The passengers in the SUV ranged in age from 15 to 53, Watson said at a third news conference.
Judy Cruz, the managing director of the emergency room department at El Centro Regional Medical Center, earlier had said the vehicle had 28 occupants and that 15 had died.
"Patients are going through a difficult time as you can imagine," El Centro Regional Medical Center CEO Adolphe Edward said. "This was a major accident and we are taking care of them in the emergency room department."
Edward advised not to refer to those injured as "undocumented" and noted that a member of the Mexican consulate was present at a news conference alongside hospital officials.
The driver of the semitruck, who is 69, had moderate injuries. The trailers he was pulling were not loaded, Watson said.
The injured occupants were taken to El Centro Regional Medical Center (ECRMC), Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs and Pioneers Memorial Hospital in nearby Brawley. UC San Diego Health said it received three patients transferred from ECRMC via air ambulance.
Three of the four patients being treated at Desert Regional Medical Center were in the intensive care unit, hospital director of communications Todd Burke told CNN.
At least one of the injured passengers from the SUV has been released from the hospital, Watson said.
Correction: A previous version of this story had the incorrect number of fatalities. This is a developing story and details, such as the number of fatalities, the number of occupants in the SUV, and the number injured may continue to change.

CNN's Steve Almasy, Priscilla Alvarez, Jaqueline Hurtado and Paul P. Murphy contributed to this report.

Video shows scene of deadly Southern California crash between vehicle and semitruck March 2, 202100:31 Twelve people, including the Ford driver, were pronounced dead at the scene, and another...

At least 13 people were killed and a dozen others were taken to hospitals after a gravel truck slammed into an overloaded sport utility vehicle just north of the California-Mexico border Tuesday morning, authorities said.

The crash happened about 6:15 a.m. PT at State Route 115 and Norrish Road in Imperial County, about 15 miles from the border, the highway patrol said.

The semitruck full of gravel hit a Ford Expedition carrying 25 people including the driver, the highway patrol said.

Ten of the dead were Mexican nationals, the Mexican Consulate in Calexico, California, said in a statement citing local authorities. The nationalities of the other three have not been determined, it said.

The SUV entered an intersection in front of the big rig before it was struck, California Highway Patrol Border Division Chief Omar Watson said.

There were only two seats in the SUV — the driver's seat and the front right seat. "Why that's so, we don't know," he said, noting that without seats, there were not restraints for everyone inside. Numerous people were ejected, he said.

"Obviously, that vehicle is not meant for that many people," he said.

"Everyone in the vehicle was injured to some extent," he said, adding that a few who had minor injuries had already been released from the hospital.

The highway patrol later clarified the number of dead after an area hospital initially said at least 15 people were killed in the crash.

The semi was headed north on Route 115, south of Norrish Road, and the Ford was traveling west on Norrish, just east of 115, officials said.

"At this point, it's unknown whether or not the Expedition stopped at the stop sign, but it did enter the intersection in front of the big rig," Watson told reporters earlier Tuesday. "Subsequently the big rig collided with the left side of the Ford Expedition."

Twelve people, including the Ford driver, were pronounced dead at the scene, and another person died at a hospital, officials said.

"There's major, intrusive damage into the SUV," Watson said. Firefighters had to cut out the right front seat of the Ford to get people out, he said.

The occupants of the SUV were between the ages of 15 and 53, Watson clarified Tuesday afternoon.

A highway patrol news release lists the driver of the SUV who was killed as a 28-year-old resident of Mexicali, which is in Mexico on the California border south of whether the crash occurred. The Ford is listed as a 1997 vehicle. The driver of the larger truck was also injured.

Officials were still working with the coroner's office Tuesday afternoon to identify those killed and notify their families, Watson said.

He said investigators were working with the Mexican consulate in case it was needed for family notifications. The area is so close to the border there is a lot of traffic between the two countries, he said.

It wasn't immediately clear how fast the vehicles were going.

The National Transportation Safety Board said it was conducting an investigation into the crash.

Mexico's government "expresses its profound sorrow" for the lives lost, the consulate in Calexico said. The consulate said it and other consulates would provide any assistance required.
