A man who crashed an SUV while trying to elude Border Patrol agents, injuring himself and six other undocumented immigrants, was sentenced to four years in prison Monday.

Miguel Angel Tejada-Loaiza, 21, was transporting six unauthorized immigrants near the Otay Mesa Port of Entry after crossing the Mexico border to San Diego, according to the JusticeDepartment.

U.S. District Judge Larry Burns said Tejada-Loaiza was more reckless than most human smuggling crimes.

“This case is at the very aggravated end of the spectrum,” the judge said.

The crash occurred when Tejada-Loaiza made a sharp turn and slammed into a guard rail.
