SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Four people are in the hospital after a car crashed into a large van and hit a guardrail on State Route 94 in Jamul.

The crash happened around 2:30 p.m. Saturday on the SR-94 near Otay Lakes Road.

The Border Patrol said a man driving a Ford Taurus sped through a checkpoint and sideswiped a Mercedes Sprinter before crashing into a nearby guardrail.

Officers who were following the vehicle stopped to help and found the driver had three men in the trunk who are suspected of being in the country illegally. All four were taken to area hospitals with injuries.

Six people were on board the van, but were not injured in the accident.

SR-94 was closed during the incident, but has since been re-opened.
