Glenn A. Phillips

End of Watch

July 8, 1974

Patrol Agent Glenn A. Phillips of the Chula Vista Station, Chula Vista Sector, was killed on July 8, 1974, in a jeep accident. He was traveling alone on the Tijuana Street Extension, a dirt road located near the international boundary near the  Port of Entry at San Ysidro. Agent Phillips was responding to a call for assistance from Patrol Agent Petraglia who had spotted a group of aliens entering the United States illegally. Agent Phillips was traveling slowly without lights when his jeep crashed into a parked flatbed trailer. The bed of the trailer struck the right side of Agent Phillips’ face killing him instantly.
