'We were fleeing for our lives.' Passenger speaks out after Tijuana crash

The female passenger of the truck that plowed into a row of street vendors and vehicles waiting to cross the Mexican-U.S. border Monday afternoon says she and the driver were fleeing an attack before the chaotic scene broke out.

Summer Draper, who was injured during the incident and is being treated at Scripps Mercy Hospital in Chula Vista, says she and her boyfriend were visiting Tijuana from Utah when the incident occurred.

Draper tells 10News the couple went to Tijuana to shop when their truck was allegedly attacked while asking for directions.
“If we would have stopped the car we would have been dead. We had to run from these people they were attacking us,” Draper said.

1. I have been to TJ a lot in the past 12 months.

While it is largely a run down 3rd world type city the people are wonderful. The border crossing leaves a lot to be desired that’s certain.

The area around the border is a little shady with vendors everywhere I never felt unsafe walking back to cross over on foot.

I wonder the nationality of the people involved because the locals hate the illegals as much as we do.

2. Do not drive your US vehicle into Tijuana

My guess is, they were set up by a phony vehicle or pedestrian collision. But that didn't give them a right to plow through other people to escape back into the US.
