Dominican suspect under ICE deportation order on the run since deadly March crash, authorities say

An illegal alien facing deportation has been on the loose since a deadly hit-and-run in March for which he is now facing felony charges in Michigan, according to reports.

The fatal collision unfolded on March 10 in Grand Rapids.

Police were alerted about an injured pedestrian lying in the street just after 3 a.m. on that Sunday morning.

Officers attempted to provide life-saving measures to 53-year-old Robert Delgado, but he died at the scene, WOOD TV reported at the time.

Investigators later located a damaged Honda Pilot believed to have been involved in the accident at a repair shop in the nearby city of Wyoming.

Inside the vehicle they found ICE deportation paperwork bearing the name of Luis Angel Otanez-Castillo, an illegal alien from the Dominican Republic suspected of killing Delgado.

Authorities believe Otanez-Castillo exited a Grand Rapids bar where he had been drinking shortly before the crash and hit speeds of up to 70 mph in the 30 mph zone where Delgado was struck and thrown 115 feet.

Following the collision, which was caught by surveillance cameras, the driver of the SUV “fled at a high rate of speed, showing no signs of slowing down,” according to a probable cause affidavit reviewed by WOOD TV.

“At no point did the driver attempt to stop and render aid or identify himself.”

Nearly two months later, felony charges were filed against Otanez-Castillo, who may have left the state, according to Kent County Prosecutor Chris Becker.

“He is not in custody. We don’t know where he is at,” Becker said.
