A U.S. citizen was arrested in Tijuana, Mexico after an apparent road rage incident in northbound traffic lanes at the San Ysidro Port of Entry injured at least three people.

The Municipal Police of Tijuana tell NBC 7 the driver began ramming pedestrians and cars waiting their turn to cross into the United States. Prior to that, the driver was involved in an altercation with a pedestrian, police said.

Mario Martinez, director of the Tijuana Police, said the suspect allegedly threatened a person with a razor on Avenida Manuel Márquez de León in the Zona Ríos.

When police approached the driver, he fled in his Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck toward the border crossing.
