Man Shot, Hurt At San Diego County Border Crossing

SAN DIEGO -- Authorities say federal officers at the nation's busiest border crossing shot and injured a man who sped away from a gate agent and rammed a pickup.

Authorities say the man didn't have proper identification while crossing into San Diego County from Mexico and was sent to a secondary inspection area.

That's where they say he rammed the pickup and crashed into concrete barriers as he tried to get onto Interstate 5.

Agents at the San Ysidro Point of Entry converged on the man's SUV and tried to drag him out, but the suspect drove in reverse and hit an agent with the vehicle's open door. Agents then opened fire.

The suspect has been hospitalized with a non-life threatening injuries.

Police say the truck he was driving was reported stolen in Colorado.
