SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Two young men are in the hospital after running a stop sign and wedging their car under a semitruck in the far West Valley.

It happened at about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday on the Loop 303 at Peoria Avenue in Surprise.

According to the Department of Public Safety, the driver of a 2009 Nissan was westbound when he reportedly ran a stop sign. The car plowed into the side of a Wal-Mart semi.

The driver and his passenger -- both men in their 20s -- were flown to a Valley hospital and are expected to recover.

The driver of the semi was not injured.

Loop 303 was closed in both directions in the area for a time, but has since reopened.
