Gail Boulanger, 64, and Helen Mitchner, 83, dead, 1 injured in rollover crash while fleeing Border Patrol near Lordsburg, New Mexico
New Mexico authorities say two people died after being ejected from a car that struck a road sign, entered a highway median and overturned several times while fleeing from U.S. Border Patrol agents.
According to Ramiro Cordero, a spokesman with the Border Patrol, agents working near Deming saw four people getting into the van and agents tried to stop the vehicle. The driver refused and drove off, which led to the pursuit.
New Mexico State Police on Friday identified the two victims as 64-year-old Gail Boulanger of Redondo Beach, California and 83-year-old Helen Mitchner of Spring Hill, Florida.
