Seven Mexican nationals were injured when an SUV being pursued by Border Patrol agents crashed in Chula Vista, Calif. on Sunday.

The pursuit began early Sunday afternoon, when an agent spotted a 2000 Ford Expedition SUV and suspected it was carrying illegal immigrants, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports

About three minutes into the pursuit, the SUV veered off the freeway and rolled down an embankment.

All seven occupants were injured, and two people sustained major injuries.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether anyone was arrested.

Border Patrol agents were chasing an SUV driven by a suspected human smuggler when the Chevrolet Trailblazer crashed Sunday in Lake Moreno, Calif., injuring all nine people inside the vehicle.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that agents attempted to pull over the SUV on state Route 94 in the Campo area shortly before noon. 

The driver, who sped away, crashed about 15 minutes later into a boulder near the entrance to Lake Morena County Park.

One person was in critical condition, while six sustained moderate injuries and two suffered minor injuries.

Agents believe the driver, who is a U.S. citizen, was smuggling the passengers into the U.S. They were all adult Mexican nationals.

“This incident is a sad example of how human smugglers show utter disregard for human life in order to profit from criminal activity,” Mark Endicott, a supervisory Border Patrol agent for the San Diego sector, said in a statement. 

NTSB Recommends School Buses Use Seat Belts to Protect Children

The National Transportation Safety Board is now acknowledging that children would be safer on school buses if they had seat belts.

Safety officials previously said seat belts aren’t necessary because the seats are tall, strong and closed spaced.

But after reviewing several deadly bus accidents, NTSB says the compartmentalization of the seats is no longer sufficient to protect children during side-impact collisions and rollovers, FOX23 reports. 

NTSB said seat belts would decrease the chances of injuries and could even save lives.

NTSB is recommending that school use three-point seat belts when buy new buses for students.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating a tour bus crash that killed 13 people and injured 31 others in Desert Hot Springs, Calif., early Sunday.

NTSB made the announcement on Twitter Sunday afternoon.

The bus was returning from the Red Earth Casino near Salton Sea when it collided with a big rig on the 10 Freeway.

According to officials, the truck was traveling slowly because workers were strangling power lines across the freeway. That’s when investigators say the bus slammed into the back of the trailer at a high rate of speed.

It’s unclear why the bus didn’t slow down.

The National Transportation Safety Board will determine what caused a 12-car commuter train and a work train to sideswipe each other in New York, leading to 33 injuries of 33 people, four seriously, Gob. Andrew M. Cuomo said Sunday.

State officials said the eastbound Long Island Rail Road train derailed after it sideswiped a yellow maintenance train, leaving a “splatter of yellow paint where the first collision occurred,” the Washington Post reports. 

“Both trains were running in the same direction — one was a work train, one was a revenue train and they sideswiped each other,” said Cuomo. “The question is why.”

NTSB: New Jersey Train That Crashed Sped Up at Last Second

A New Jersey Transit commuter train that crashed into a Hoboken terminal last week sped up and was going twice the 10 mph speed limit, the National Transportation Safety Board said Thursday.

The findings come from a data recorder and video from the front of the train, the Associated Press reports.

Less than a second before the crash, the train’s engineer used the emergency brake, the NTSB said.

The train was traveling 8 mph until about 38 seconds before the crash, when the throttle increased and train sped up to a maximum of 21 mph.

The train has an alert system that sounds an alarm when the train exceeds 20 mph. It’s still unclear whether the system worked.

A Maryland man was so distraught and troubled by the Orlando shootings that he crashed his car through a gate at CIA headquarters in Langley early Monday, his mother said.

NBC News reports that Thomas Luu, 35, of Rockville, crashed through the gate in a Ford Focus just after 2 a.m.

Investigators said Lue told agents he wanted to get the CIA’s attention but wouldn’t say why.

Luu’s mother said he was angry about the shooting and disappeared overnight.

Investigators wrote in their court filing, “The chain link fence is approximately eight feet tall with another one-and-a-half feet of barbed wire, and covers the two outbound lanes of travel. The gate is clearly marked with a sign that notifies visitors that it is closed; there also are ‘no trespassing’ signs in the immediate area.”

Lou is being held in federal custody while he faces a federal charge of damaging government property.

Secret Service Agent First to Render Medical Aid to Pilot of Crashed Thunderbirds Jet

A Denver-based Secret Service agent was the first person to render medical aid after a Thunderbirds jet crashed after the Air Force graduation, ABC7 reports.

Senior Special Agent Charlie Beans saw the Thunderbirds fly over the commencement.

The pilot was ejected from the plane before it went dow in Widefield, south of Colorado Springs.

“We had a little trouble finding it at first, there was no smoke coming up or anything,” said Beans, who was onboard a Colorado Air National Guard helicopter.

“You think the worst possible thing. I think ‘fireball,’ and did it hit a house and that kind of stuff, but thank goodness this one worked out pretty well,” said Beans. “As we were going towards it, we learned that the pilot did eject, so we were at least looking for that.”

Beans found the pilot walking around when the helicopter touched down.

“The crew members looked back at me, gave me the thumbs up. They brought him to me and loaded him in the helicopter,” said Beans. “I gave him a quick rapid trauma assessment, which is kind of something we do to make sure he doesn’t have any broken bones or he’s in shock or anything like that. I just grabbed his leg a couple of times, I said, ‘Is your back OK? Is your neck OK? Are your legs OK? Brother we’re going to get you out of here, just sit back.'”
