HANOVER, VA (WWBT) - One man is dead and a suspected illegal immigrant is facing a manslaughter charge. This after a two-vehicle crash Friday night on E. Patrick Henry Boulevard in Hanover county.

What's left now is only the yellow paint, shattered glass, and a broken brake light; scattered reminders of a violent and deadly crash.

It was about 10:00 Friday night. Casey Bohr, 23, of King William was driving home. Authorities say Bohr's car was sideswiped by an SUV in the oncoming lane, driven by Feliciano Suarez, 29. Bohr's vehicle then tore into the side of the road and flipped. Investigators say Bohr, who worked for a local beverage distributor, was not wearing a seat belt and died on the scene.

Suarez was then ticketed for DUI and driving on a suspended license. According to the sheriff's office, Suarez later admitted that he is in the country illegally. As a result, Immigration and Customs Enforcement is also now involved.

Friday's crash follows the case of another suspected illegal immigrant, accused of drunkenly crashing into and killing a Richmond nun in August. It also took place just 48-hours after Hanover sheriff's deputies arrested five people at a DUI checkpoint.

But that's not what matters now. Not to the dozens of friends offering online condolences, or to the relatives who declined to speak publicly. For now, it's a matter of one life lost, and another who stands accused of taking it.

Hanover authorities also charged Suarez with involuntary manslaughter. Currently, he is at the Pamunkey Regional Jail. Authorities say the federal detention process is also underway. Meanwhile, a passenger in Bohr's vehicle, believed to be his mother, is expected to be okay.
