A funeral is scheduled today for a Border Patrol agent who was killed in a two-car crash whir on duty near Carrizo Springs, Texas, on Friday, KSAT reports.
Tyler Robledo, a three-year veteran of Border Patrol, was just 34 when he was involved in a head-on collision while on patrol. The other driver also was killed.
“It’s a real small community and to see him, one of the good persons, it’s really hard,” said family friend Martha Esquivel.
“When dealing with things like this, it’s never easy. He’s one of ours whether you know the agent or not. Either way he’s part of our family,” said Jose Gamez, supervisory Border Patrol agent and Del Rio sector commander.
Robledo is survived by his wife and two young children.
