Border Patrol agent injured in vehicle collision in Ramona

Posted: Updated:

RAMONA (CNS) - A Border Patrol agent was airlifted to a hospital Tuesday afternoon after his vehicle struck a truck containing a mother and her three children, who were unhurt, authorities said.

The crash happened about 2:20 p.m. on state Route 78, east of Magnolia Avenue, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Brian Pennings.

The 50-year-old agent and a colleague were westbound in a Chevrolet Tahoe that crossed into oncoming traffic for unknown reasons, Pennings said.

The SUV sideswiped a Ford F-250 carrying a 28-year-old mother and her children, ages 7, 6 and 3, Pennings said. The family escaped injury, he said.

The SUV's driver, whose name was not released, was unconscious when airlifted to a hospital, Pennings said. The other agent in the vehicle was not hurt.

SR 78 was closed from Old Julian Highway to Third Street for the crash investigation and cleanup.
