Borbonio-Olivio had two prescription drugs in his system, had no driver’s license, was speeding more than 10 miles over the speed limit, and was looking at money in his wallet at the time of the crash Saturday, according to arrest warrants obtained by The Herald.
Borbonio-Olivio tried to flee the crash scene before police arrived, prosecutors said.
“It is unfathomable how something like this could happen,” said Josh Byrdic, one of Charles Byrdic’s children. “The driver never should have been driving. He was distracted. He had no license. And now we find out he is here illegally.”
Byrdic, 60, was in his yard around 9:30 a.m. when Borbonio-Olivio ran off the road and hit Byrdic, said Randy Newman, 6th Circuit solicitor.
Byrdic died at the scene. He was hit so hard that he was knocked out of his shoes and catapulted from the suspect’s SUV, Byrdic’s family said.
Imagine having coffee on a weekend morning, watching your dad do whatever he's doing in the yard, and then having an SUV crush him right out of his shoes.
Build the damn wall already. And for Borbonio-Olivio? Death penalty. Sorry not sorry, but this repeat offender, this criminal, this murdering, border-hopping felon had a huge number of opportunities to NOT BREAK THE FUCKING LAW, and instead he continued his criminal ways and now an American is dead. Death Penalty.
UPDATE: Someone pointed out that he was arrested multiple times, but not deported.
I think that's actually worse.
