TUCSON, Ariz. - A U.S. Border Patrol agent was killed in a car accident Thursday near Sells in southern Arizona.
The agency provided few details but said the agent was involved in a two-vehicle accident around 9:30 a.m. on Federal Route 19.
The agent was pronounced dead at the scene. The agent was not identified so all family members could be notified.
The female driver of the other vehicle had minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital.
Border Patrol spokesman Omar Candelaria says it's the second agent death this year. Another agent was killed in a car accident near Rachal, Texas earlier this year.
Chief Patrol Agent Victor Manjarrez, Jr. says the death is a "terrible tragedy" and fellow agents all are feeling a sense of loss.
