San Diego hit-and-run suspect had been deported 15 times

CHULA VISTA (KUSI) — A suspected hit-and-run driver who struck the vehicle of a family driving home from Disneyland, leaving a 6-year-old boy with severe head injuries, had been deported up to 15 times prior, according to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Lennox Lake, 6, suffered an open skill fracture when the car he was riding in, with parents Ingrid and Benjamin Lake, was struck by a truck near their home in San Ysidro last Saturday, according to a GoFundMe page created to help the family with medical expenses.

Border Patrol agents later arrested the suspected driver, 38-year-old Constantino Banda who had been deported at least 15 times before, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
