Mexican drone crashes near home in El Paso

From a report in the El Paso Times:

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating Tuesday's crash of a Mexican drone in El Paso's Lower Valley.

"We are collecting data about the crash. We don't have the aircraft because it was returned to its owner," said Keith Holloway, spokesman for the NTSB, which investigates aircraft crashes in the United States and in other countries that requests its help.

The aircraft is a mini orbiter unmanned aerial vehicle developed by the Aeronautics Defense System.
