A 15-year-old boy from Mexico, who attempted to smuggle seven illegal immigrants through the U.S. border, sent Texas troopers on a high-speed chase, per the NY Post

The underage driver, whose identity has not been disclosed, was reportedly driving a Chevrolet that carried seven undocumented immigrants into the Texas border. In dashcam footage released by Texas Department of Public Safety Troopers, the teen is seen pushing the sedan to high speeds on highways and local roads in an effort to ditch police. 

The boy then turned onto an unpaved road, causing him to come to a stop. In the dashcam video, eight young men are seen jumping out of the vehicle and fleeing in different directions. Police later caught up with all seven passengers including the driver. 

They were carried to Border Patrol officials and the unidentified driver was arrested and charged with,

“smuggling of persons and evading arrest,”

police said per the outlet.
