One person is dead and three more are fighting for their lives after a car chase Thursday night.  

19-year-old Jose Zambrano from Mission drove the car.  The chase began in La Grulla and ended in Mission.  Zambrano had his brother Pedro and three suspected undocumented immigrants in the car.  A 61-year-old suspected immigrant from Guatemala died in the crash.  

The 18-year-old brother Pedro and the others are in intensive care at area hospitals.  The accident happened near the intersection of Business 83 and Inspiration Road. 

"Right when he got Business 83 he's just going too fast, they said that some of the speeds were over a 100-130 mph," Sgt. Manny Casas of the Mission Police Department said. "It's virtually impossible to go those speeds and try to make a turn."  

Zambrano is facing four felonies and life in prison.  His bond was set at a total $4 million.
