Semi driver in deadly Colorado highway crash is illegal immigrant who was deported from US multiple times ICE

Colorado — Ignacio Cruz-Mendoza, a 47-year-old Mexican national, faces serious charges following a tragic accident on June 11 along Hwy 285 near Conifer, Colorado. The incident, which involved Cruz-Mendoza's semi-truck carrying a load of steep pipe, resulted in one fatality and left another person seriously injured, according to Colorado State Patrol (CSP) reports.

 

Cruz-Mendoza allegedly lost control of the semi, causing it to roll over and spill its cargo onto five other vehicles, leading to a closure of Hwy 285 for over 12 hours as authorities responded to the scene.

 

Authorities confirmed that Cruz-Mendoza, despite not being injured in the crash, has a troubling history with U.S. immigration. According to ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement), Cruz-Mendoza first came under their radar in April 2002 when he was arrested on local charges in Jefferson County, Oregon. An immigration judge subsequently ordered his removal to Mexico on May 29, 2002.

 

Since that initial order, ICE stated that Cruz-Mendoza has been removed or voluntarily returned to Mexico a staggering 16 times over the past two decades. Despite these removals, he was once again in the U.S. and involved in the fatal crash in Colorado.

 

ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Denver has coordinated with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, lodging a detainer to ensure notification should Cruz-Mendoza be released from custody.

 

Cruz-Mendoza is currently held in custody at Jefferson County Jail, with his next court appearance scheduled for July 30. He faces charges including reckless driving and homicide-related offenses.

 

The case underscores ongoing debates surrounding immigration enforcement and the consequences of repeat offenders in the United States. Authorities continue to investigate the circumstances of the crash while addressing the legal and immigration aspects of Cruz-Mendoza's case.

 

As the community mourns the loss from this tragic incident, the focus remains on justice for the victims and ensuring accountability for those involved in the crash
