A smuggler smashed a truck through two fences and ran across the Donna bridge on Monday night — leaving Border Patrol agents and Donna police in the dust.

Agents attempted to stop the smuggler Monday night near the Donna bridge, according to a news release from U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The driver didn't stop and headed for the bridge.

"As the agents attempted to conduct a traffic stop, the driver fled towards the Donna POE, ramming the entrance gate," according to the news release. "As the driver continued, he hit a second gate and concrete barrier before coming to a stop."

POE is an acronym for port of entry.

During the incident, the smuggler also rammed a Donna police vehicle.

The smuggler and a passenger started running across the bridge toward Mexico, according to the news release. Agents and police officers weren't able to catch them.
