A Border Patrol agent is recovering in a hospital from injuries he sustained during an ATV crash in a remote area of western Maine.

The unidentified agent, who was wearing a helmet, crashed the ATF on Monday afternoon in northern Franklin County along the Quebec border.

His partner, who was driving another ATV, helped stabilize this partner while waiting for help. Because of the area’s remoteness, it took emergency personnel about an hour to arrive to the scene, CBP said.

He was airlifted to a hospital in Bangor.

“Responding to assistance calls is something we do on a regular basis,” Jason D. Owens, the chief border patrol agent in Maine, told the Bangor Daily News. “When it hits so close to home, when one of our own agents is the injured party, it really makes us thankful for the training, equipment we have available and for the first-rate response from our local partners who respond quickly to calls for assistance.”
