Border Patrol Agent Daniel James succumbed to injuries received one month earlier in an automobile accident while attempting to stop suspected illegal immigrants south of Freer, Texas.

While Agent James and his partner were turning around, their vehicle struck a dip in the road, causing it to flip over. Agent James was thrown from the vehicle and pinned between it and a fence. He was transported to a local hospital where he was hospitalized until passing away.

Agent James had been employed with the US Border Patrol for three years, assigned to the Freer Border Patrol Station which is part of Laredo Sector in Texas; he had previously served with the United States Marine Corps during Operation Desert Storm. He is survived by his wife, two children, and his parents.

Miles, I periodically reflect on how much it hurt to see your kids right after you passed away. I feel that I should have been there or not had traded those work days with you. Somehow, as your journeyman and good friend I feel I failed you and your family. I carry your Fallen Hero/Silent Partner card with me every day at work. Continue to rest easy and I know you have my watching over me from heaven.
