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.”

Despite the suspect’s background, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said Villasenor-Saucedo faces “a maximum potential penalty of no more than 2 years in prison” if convicted.
