Special Agent John Orellana was killed in an accident while responding to back up a United States Border Patrol agent who was chasing several illegal aliens in Imperial County, California.

As Agent Orellana was responding to the call his vehicle collided with a tractor trailer at the intersection of California State Routes 86 and 22. Agent Orellana had been temporarily assigned to the area due to a dramatic increase in illegal alien smuggling.

Agent Orellana had served with the Immigration and Naturalization Service for 23 years. He is survived by his wife and three children.
