The Department of Justice said late Wednesday that a Mexican national charged this week for his role in a fatal car accident in October was an illegal immigrant who had been deported eight times.
Miguel Angel Villasenor-Saucedo was charged in the death of two women in an accident in Louisville, Kentucky. Villasenor-Saucedo was the alleged driver of the truck, and he fled the scene.
The suspect is still at large, and a warrant has been issued for his arrest, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Western District of Kentucky.
"Soon after the fatal accident, it was learned that Villasenor-Saucedo was a Mexican national illegally present in the United States," the U.S. Attorney's Office said. "Upon learning of Villasenor-Saucedo's illegal immigration status in the United States, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office began investigating Villasenor-Saucedo and found that he had previously been deported from the United States on eight occasions and did not have lawful authority to be present in the United States."
