Border agent sues Ford over reservation accident
A U.S. Border Patrol officer is suing Ford Motor Company for an accident on the Tohono O'odham Nation in Arizona that left him in a quadriplegic state.

Luis Pena, 31, was responding to a narcotics call on the reservation when the Ford F250 pickup he was driving rolled over. Pena says the vehicle was defective.

The lawsuit was filed in state court in Arizona. The family of a Navajo Nation police officer who died on duty while driving a Ford Expedition has a case against Ford in tribal court. Ford is challenging the tribe's jurisdiction in a pending case in federal court.
