Utah driver hits five pedestrians and rams into 17 cars, 14 street vendors in Tijuana road rage incident
A U.S. citizen was arrested at the San Ysidro Port of Entry in Tijuana, Mexico on Monday after a road rage incident that involved five hit pedestrians, 17 rammed cars, and 14 mobile street vendors.
As reported by NBC 7 San Diego, the Municipal Police of Tijuana stated the driver was involved in an altercation with a pedestrian near the Zona Ríos area in Tijuana, which led the driver to attempt to recklessly flee to the United States by ramming into random pedestrians and cars waiting to cross the border.
Police say the man, who was driving a Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck with Utah plates, had allegedly threatened a pedestrian with a razor blade prior to the incident. He was arrested and turned over to federal investigators. His identity has still not be released.
The incident left at least three injured, including a police officer. U.S. Customs and Border Protection told NBC 7 the incident did not impact wait times at the border.
