EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – The El Paso Police Department has named eight of the 10 people involved in last week’s deadly crash on Paisano, including four El Paso teenagers.

A 2019 Chevrolet Cruze crashed at about 2:15 a.m. on June 25 in the 700 block of Paisano, near Union Plaza. U.S. Border Patrol agents had attempted to stop the car before it crashed, however, officials said they were not chasing the vehicle.

Border Patrol says all information gathered so far indicates the crash was a human smuggling attempt.

The crash killed seven, including the driver, and injured three more. Here are the names of those involved, according to the El Paso Police Department:
