In a shocking new video, an illegal immigrant was struck by a vehicle when he attempted to flee police who had pulled him over, after suspecting that the vehicle had been involved in transporting illegal aliens.
The video, which was provided by Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin, showed the vehicle slowing down, just before several of the passengers decided to jump from the vehicle as police approached, triggering the driver to make a run for it in the opposite direction when he was hit by an on-coming vehicle.4
The video shows the lifeless body of the driver and police covering his body with a tarp.
The incident took place in South Texas, near the Mexican border cities of Reynosa and Nuevo Laredo.

“One ran into the highway & was struck & killed by a vehicle. Smuggler charged w/ human smuggling causing death.”
Moments later, Melugin shared shocking pictures of another migrant who had attempted to flee authorities in Texas on Thursday morning, which ended in tragedy.
