A disturbing video shows a Native American man being struck by a Border Patrol SUV on a road in southern Arizona.

The video shows Remes, who is holding the camera, walking into the middle of the road in the Tohono O'odham Nation where he stands for a few seconds before the white Chevy comes straight at him, knocking him to the ground.

"They just ran me over, bro", Remes says.

Remes was taken to the hospital where he was treated for minor bruising.

A suspected drug smuggler died in a rollover crash while trying to elude Texas Border Patrol agents in Laredo, KGNS-TV reports.

Agents say the driver was thrown from the vehicle and in dire need of medical assistance.

Remes' family told the newspaper in a statement that they hope the video of the incident will "contribute to a greater justice for O'odham families and all victims of Border Patrol violence, both inside and outside the Thong O'odham Nation".

"This is what we have to deal with constantly", Remes's neighbor Amy Marie said when she posted his video, which has since been viewed hundreds of thousands of times and has stirred yet more anger within the tribe at Border Patrol in the Trump era.

Still, he said, leaders of the impoverished tribe were anxious about provoking the USA government and risking federal funds.

However, the agency would not reveal the driver's identity yet as the matter "is still under investigation".

After Remes's video began circulating, tribe chairman Edward D. Manuel released a terse statement, saying his police would work with the FBI to investigate.

U.S Border Patrol ran over an O'odham man today on the Tohono O'odham Nation.

The Border Patrol said it was "actively investigating". The statement was issued on Friday by Indivisible Tohono.
