LAKE WORTH, Fla. (AP) β€” Court records show a man accused in a Florida hit-and-run crash that became fatal when the victim recently died has already been deported from the U.S. The accident happened in August along a road in Lake Worth. Authorities say 65-year-old Luciano Garcia was struck by a pickup truck near his home. He died Wednesday. The man charged in the crash, 28-year-old Marvin Castaneda-Juan, now faces an enhanced charge of fatal hit-and-run. He had been jailed since just after the crash but his lawyers say he has now been deported. It's not clear where Castaneda-Juan was sent but he is from Mexico.
