According to the United States Attorney’s Office, the driver in a deadly hit-and-run car wreck that killed two women in Louisville, Kentucky, now faces charges for illegal re-entry into the United States following deportation.

Previously Charged for Leaving Scene of Hit-and-run

Miguel Angel Villasenor-Saucedo, 40, was involved in a hit-and-run car crash on October 22 in Louisville, Kentucky. Officials say Villasenor-Saucedo fled the scene on foot following the deadly collision, reports WAVE3.

Two women were hit by a truck driven by Villasenor-Saucedo, causing their deaths. The women were just involved in a previous accident and were outside of their car when they were struck. WAVE3 reports that one of the women died at the scene of the crash, and the other was transported with serious injuries to University of Louisville Hospital before succumbing to her injuries.

The United States Attorney’s Office says the man was deported from the United States in May 2013. A warrant is currently out for his arrest. Villasenor-Saucedo faces a maximum of two years in prison if convicted of the illegal re-entry charges.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office says Villasenor-Saucedo was deported from the United States eight times prior to the fatal hit-and-run and did not have lawful authority to be in the country.
