SAN DIEGO (AP) - U.S. officials say two people were hit by a car and killed as they sprinted from a van that sped across the border crossing from Tijuana, Mexico, into San Diego County.

U.S. Border Patrol agent Tekae Michael tells KNSD-TV (https://bit.ly/2f4eCMX ) the incident happened around 2 a.m. Sunday at the San Ysidro Port of Entry.

Michael says the van with nine people inside sped through the port of entry and continued on Interstate 5 on the U.S. side before stopping a short distance from the border.

All of the van’s occupants then ran. Michael says an oncoming car fatally struck two of them. The seven others were taken into custody.

The interstate was closed overnight as officials investigated.
