Two tragedies over the weekend have left 16 dead and many more wounded in Texas.
Eight migrants were killed and 10 injured when a speeding SUV Sunday morning plowed into a group of people in the border city of Brownsville, local police investigator Martin Sandoval confirmed while speaking on NewsNation Prime Sunday night.
According to the Associated Press, the victims were Venezuelan migrants, most of whom were men. They were waiting for a bus after spending the night at a migrant shelter called the Bishop Enrique San Pedro Ozanam Center.
The driver, a man who has not yet been identified, ran a red light and sped off the road into a crowd of waiting migrants.
