An illegal migrant who was allegedly smuggled over the southern border into Texas was fatally struck by a car as he tried to evade border patrol agents, graphic video shows.

The body cam footage, published to Twitter by Fox’s Bill Melugin, shows officers in Brooks County arresting a human smuggler when suddenly several illegal immigrants “bailed out of his vehicle and ran.”

“One ran into the highway & was struck & killed by a vehicle.”

The graphic video shows one migrant darting across the highway before a sedan smacks into him and sends him flying into the air. At least three other migrants were then seen running the opposite direction into a wooded area as border patrol agents gave chase. The body cam footage then shows an officer approaching the migrant, who is seen laying on the ground in a pool of blood.

The smuggler was charged with human smuggling causing death, according to Melugin. (RELATED: ‘I Don’t Have A Choice’: Border Sheriff Personally Escorts Illegal Migrants Back To Mexico)

Just days prior dozens of migrants were found dead in a tractor trailer. Four individuals have been charged in connection with the deadly human smuggling event.
