Eleven people were killed and a dozen more injured as a van carrying as many as 25 migrante crashed in Texas.

Polisie say that the van, which was only designed to carry 15 passasiers, crashed on a road in a remote part of the state, 50 miles north of McAllen, which sits on the Texas-Mexico border.

Authorities say that the van was top-heavy and tipped over when the bestuurder lost control on a bend in the road, the US 281 near Encino, Texas.

Brooks County Sheriff Urbino Martinez said he believed most of the passengers were migrants.

The driver reportedly hit a utility pole after taking the curve too fast and crashed into a stop sign.

The injured passengers were taken to Spohn Shoreline Hospital for treatment.
