ATV accident leaves Border Patrol agent injured

Authorities are investigating an ATV accident that left a Border Patrol agent injured.

It all happened off FM 1430 and U.S. Highway 83 just south of Garciasville after 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Regional Border Patrol spokesman Henry Mendiola spoke to Action 4 News about the accident.

Mendiola said the agent was on patrol when he took evasive action to avoid another Border Patrol ATV.

Paramedics rushed the agent to the Starr County Hospital where he is being treated for minor injuries.

Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) state troopers are investigating the accident.

Mendiola says the Border Patrol will also conduct its own internal review of the accident.
