U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Spokesman Ross Feinstein said Wednesday that once Jorge Castillo-Perez is released from custody, he will be detained by federal authorities and likely deported to Mexico.

Ocean County prosecutors said Castillo-Perez was charged with driving with a suspended license and being involved in a crash involving serious bodily injury following Tuesday’s accident.

Lakewood police say Castillo-Perez was previously ticketed for driving without a license.

Authorities say the SUV driven by Castillo-Perez’s hit a van carrying 13 contract workers for Enterprise Rent-A-Car, who were returning from a trip transporting vehicles.
