Border Patrol Agent Killed In Two Vehicle Crash

Arizona Daily Star

September 03, 2010

TUSCON, AZ – An on-duty Border Patrol agent assigned to the Tucson Sector was killed Thursday morning in a two-vehicle collision southwest of Tucson

The agent, whose name is not being released pending notification of relatives, suffered multiple injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene on Federal Route 19 south of Sells, authorities said.

Officers with the Tohono O’odham Police Department went at 9:30 a.m. to the scene, which was about six miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, said Police Chief Joseph Delgado.


Sells, the capital of the Tohono O’odham Nation, is 60 miles southwest of Tucson.

The agent, who was alone, was driving a pickup north on Federal Route 19, authorities said.

The second vehicle was driven by a woman whose name was not released.

She suffered minor injuries and was taken to the Indian Health Service Hospital in Sells where she was treated and released, Delgado said.

No information was released regarding how or why the crash occurred. No arrests have been made.

“Border Patrol agents understand the inherent dangers of the job, but the loss of a life under these circumstances leave us all feeling lost,” Victor M. Manjarrez Jr., chief of the Tucson Sector, said in a news release.
