End of Watch

January 16, 2002

Agent Hernandez was rounding a curve on a gravel road at Rancho Toluca Road while on patrol near Progesso, Texas, when his sport utility patrol vehicle rolled over twice. A fellow border patrol agent located the wreck at approximately 2300 hours. Agent Hernandez was flown to a local hospital but had already succumbed to his injuries. Agent Hernandez was assigned to the Mercedes Texas Station.
