A Border Patrol agent was hit by a vehicle, and the driver of the vehicle was shot Thursday night in a remote area of New Mexico, said Agent Ramiro Cordero, a spokesman for the U.S. Border Patrol’s El Paso sector.

Cordero said both the agent and the driver of the vehicle were taken to a hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries.

The incident happened about 11 p.m. Thursday in a remote area about 25 miles west of the border crossing at Santa Teresa, New Mexico, Cordero said.
