DULZURA (CNS) - A U.S. Border Patrol agent and another driver were injured Wednesday in a head-on collision on a rain-slick East County roadway.
The 28-year-old federal officer was heading east on State Route 94 near Otay Lakes Road in the Dulzura area about 6:30 a.m. when he lost control of the marked government vehicle he was driving, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The patrol vehicle slid across a double yellow line and crashed into an oncoming 2000 Nissan Altima, CHP public affairs Officer Brian Pennings said.
Medics took both drivers to a hospital for treatment of moderate to serious injuries.
The driver of the Nissan, a 43-year-old man from Tecate, Mexico, suffered more significant trauma -- including broken bones -- than the agent did, according to Pennings.
The accident left the rural route closed in the area for about two hours.
