Authorities say a man led Border Patrol agents on a 100-mile chase from the U.S.-Mexico border into Southern California before the driver and six suspected undocumented immigrants stopped and surrendered in Irvine.

Border Patrol Agent Michael Jimenez says an agent saw a sport utility vehicle slow down in Otay Mesa, Calif., near the border early Saturday, and six men jumped in.

Another agent tried to pull the man over, but he sped onto Route 905 and eventually to Interstate 5, where he reached speeds over 100 mph.

The pursuit ended in Orange County at about 2:25 a.m. when the man pulled off at an exit.

Jimenez says the driver and passengers were taken into the custody of the Border Patrol.

There were no injuries or damages from the chase.
