BROWNSVILLE, Texas — A Border Patrol agent was killed Thursday morning while rendering aid to a stranded driver, officials said.

nullJames Dominguez, 41, had stopped to help a motorist with a flat tire and was picking up debris from the shoulder of Highway 90 when he was struck by a pickup, The San Antonio Express-News reported.

Dominguez was an eight-year veteran of the agency.

“We mourn the loss of Agent Dominguez and offer our condolences to his family, friends and co-workers,” Border Patrol spokesperson Dora Doyle said.

A DPS spokesperson said both the motorist and her husband tried unsuccessfully to aid Dominguez. The accident is under investigation.

  3. I think that these agents should stand at the border with a gun and get the shots in first. Of course, Nobama would want to prosecute them.

  4. SAD…Praying for his family…

  5. I don’t know how anyone could press “Like” for any PO being killed. May

  6. May God have mercy on his soul and may he rest in peace.

  7. We press “like” for exposing this terrible news and any other truth that needs to be told. Sometimes people like the statement of the one who is posting the article. :^)

    John McCllelan: a “like” on a LEO death is the equivalent of a salute, a way of expressing our appreciation for the LEO’s service…..many people do not understand the reason behind a “like” on an announcement of death…..would you be so kind as to inform your fb friends who don’t know the meaning?….thanks

  20. So unnecessary for our agents to die like that! When is the government going to do something to protect these guys, and our country.

  21. The government is not doing enough! This has to stop.
