Texas Special Agent Dies in Crash Near Border

TEXAS (KXAN) — A Texas Department of Public Safety special agent has died after a crash near the Mexico border, DPS announced Saturday.

The agent was working a “tactical” operation with U.S. Border Patrol Friday when the accident happened near Eagle Pass, Texas, the DPS release said. They did not provide the circumstances surrounding that crash.

Special Agent Anthony Salas, 37, was transported to an area hospital, then air lifted to San Antonio. He passed away Saturday.

“I am saddened to hear that DPS Special Agent Anthony Salas was killed in a horrific vehicle accident in the line of duty in Eagle Pass,” Gov. Greg Abbott said. “This tragedy is a somber reminder of the selfless sacrifices our law enforcement make as they work to keep us safe. I ask Texans to join Cecilia and me in praying for Agent Salas’ family as they grieve this unimaginable loss.”

Officers moved from APD sex offender unit to assist patrol

Salas joined the department in 2013 and was stationed in El Paso, according to DPS. Before that role, he worked with Texas Highway Patrol and served in the United States Marine Corps.
