LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - State troopers have now identified the man killed in last weekend's rollover. It was after a high speed chase in South Laredo.

The driver, 47-year-old Jose Andres Soto, was transported to a San Antonio Hospital where he later died.

DPS says there were several passengers in that vehicle and they're trying to figure out whether or not they're the reason that Soto fled from troopers who tried to pull him over. The chase lasted about 15 minutes.

There's no word on the condition of the passengers, but DPS says they're working with Border Patrol on investigating whether or not this was a case of human smuggling.
