An American citizen has been arrested after allegedly running down five pedestrians and ramming 17 cars in a “road rage” incident in Mexico.

The driver is said to have begun ramming into people as they waited to cross into the US from the San Ysidro Port of Entry in Tijuana on Monday May 13th.

The city’s secretary of public security said in a Facebook post that the man allegedly threatened a Mexican citizen with a knife prior to the incident.

When police arrived at the scene, the suspect sped off in a black Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck towards the border crossing, he added.

As he fled, he is said to have hit five pedestrians, 17 vehicles and 14 food vendors, leaving three people injured.

The driver was arrested by police and handed over to the Public Ministry Agent.
