SAN DIEGO, California — 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 said the incident happened about 2 a.m. Sunday at the San Ysidro Port of Entry.

Michael said 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. The van’s occupants fled and an oncoming car struck two of them.
