A driver drove at high speeds through the U.S.-Mexico border crossing south of San Diego Wednesday, crashing before entering into the U.S.
The driver attempted to drive through the San Ysidro Port of Entry checkpoint without stopping just before midnight.
When entering the area of the POE where drivers stop for a check by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent, the driver accelerated.
It was long before the vehicle crashed into two other cars just north of the checkpoint.
The California Highway Patrol was called in to help clear the wreckage. All three cars were towed and the border crossing – considered the busiest in the world – was once again operating as normal.
There were no injuries.
When asked by NBC 7, a spokesperson for U.S. Customs and Border Protection would not confirm if the driver was in custody.
CHP officials tell us they made no arrest and assumed CBP detained the driver.
