RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Prince William County is suing the federal government over a deadly DUI crash that killed a nun.

The county wants to get information as to why the suspect, an illegal immigrant, was released from custody pending a deportation hearing.

Carlos Montano was freed from custody before the crash last August, that killed Sister Denise Mosier and injured two others.

Montano had also been arrested twice before on drunk driving charges.
