CALIPATRIA — Four undocumented immigrants were caught this morning after attempting to flee from county Sheriff's Office deputies just west of here.
Sheriff's Sgt. Pompeyo Tabarez said a sheriff's deputy stopped a van just north of Eddins Road after it failed to stop at a stop sign on Brandt Road about 2:30 a.m.
As the deputy was approaching the van, the driver sped away.
After a short pursuit, the driver slowed enough to where he and three passengers were able to jump out of the van.
According to a press release from the California Highway Patrol, one of the passengers, Luis Rodriguez of the state of Guerrero, Mexico, got his foot run over by the moving van.
