Suspect in California drink-drive crash 'deported 15 times'

A driver suspected of driving drunk and causing a crash that caused a Southern California boy to have head injuries was deported to Mexico 15 times in the past, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The injured boy, Lennox Lake, was coming home from Disneyland with his family on Saturday, and the group was about a block from their home when the collision happened.

According to police, Banda-Acosta was driving his Chevy Silverado pickup truck at a high rate of speed on Camino de La Plaza at around 11.30pm when he blew past a stop sign at Dairy Mart Road and smashed into a Honda Accord carrying the Lake family, who were returning home from a trip to Disneyland. According to authorities, he was arrested about a mile away, where Border Patrol agents found him and a passenger inside a damaged truck. Constantino Banda-Acosta was last deported January 18, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

The boy, Lennox Lake, was in a vehicle seat.

Banda pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges, including DUI, hit-and-run crash resulting in injuries and driving without a license.

Banda's bail was set at $230,000.

Lauren Mack, spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said the agency would seek deportation for Banda-Acosta after any prison sentence is served.

Lennox sustained an open skull fracture with the location being slightly above his left eye.

He added that doctors said if Lennox's scalp laceration had been an inch further back on his head, "he wouldn't be here".

"My wife and I made up games, like making animals out of Play-doh and have him guess what they were", Lake said.
