"We believe there was 27 passengers in this SUV that struck a semitruck full of gravel," emergency room managing director Judy Cruz said in a Facebook Live video. At least 14 people died at the scene of the "major accident," Cruz said. Three people were flown from the scene to a hospital, she said. Seven patients were taken to El Centro, where one person died, she said. Cruz said the hospital had called for air support from other agencies to transport three of the patients to other facilities. California Highway Patrol Officer Jack Sanchez told USA TODAY the crash involved a big rig and a Ford Expedition at the intersection of State Route 115 and Norrish Road near Holtville, California. The big rig driver suffered "multiple injuries," Sanchez said. Holtville is about 50 miles west of Arizona and 10 miles north of the border.
