An illegal immigrant back in the United States after being deported 8 times, has killed two women in an auto accident and fled the scene.
Miguel Angel Villasenor-Saucedo, a 40 year old Mexican, currently living in Louisville, Kentucky, was driving his Chevy 1500 truck in Louisville October 22, when he struck the two women, who were standing outside their car after being involved in a separate collision. Saucedo fled the scene without rendering assistance.
Saucedo was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal auto accident, failure to render assistance, and illegal entry into the country after deportation.
Saucedo is currently on the run and a warrant was issued.
According to a press release from the Justice Department, after the warrant was issued, authorities were alerted that Villasenor-Saucedo was a Mexican national living in the United States. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement became involved and upon further investigation discovered that he had been deported a eight times before.
Courier-Journal reported that the records show Villasenor-Saucedo was caught by border patrol agents in Texas four separate times. In June and September 2011, he told border agents he had crossed the Rio Grande near Brownsville and also rafted across the river near Hidalgo. In November 2012 he was twice stopped by border agents and told them he crossed the river near Hidalgo two times within six days.
Currently, the maximum penalty Saucedo can face if and when he is captured, is no more than two years in prison, according to the Justice Department press release.
