    A U.S. Border Patrol agent was recovering after his vehicle crashed and flipped in Otay Mesa Wednesday.

    According to CAL FIRE, the accident happened near Alta Road and Otay Mesa Road on private property around 7 p.m..

    Border Patrol and San Diego firefighters responded.

    A helicopter was also called to help in the rescue, but CAL FIRE officials say the agent got himself out of the wrecked vehicle.

    When an air ambulance arrived, the agent was in a ravine.

    The agent was flown to Scripps Mercy Hospital with moderate injuries. Officials say no one else was involved in the accident.

    NBC 7 is still waiting to hear back from Border Patrol to find out what led to the accident.
