Border Patrol Agent Alejandro Flores-Bañuelos was struck and killed by a vehicle on Highway 86, north of Marina Drive, near Salton City, California.
He was the first to arrive at the scene of a vehicle crash that occurred during a dust storm that caused low visibility. He was assisting an elderly patient who was still in her car when another vehicle struck him and the car.
Agent Flores-Bañuelos was transported to Pioneers Memorial Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
Agent Flores-Bañuelos was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the United States Border Patrol for 12 years. He is survived by his expectant wife and three children.
