Foley man accused of vehicular homicide also illegal alien

A Foley man accused of vehicular homicide lied to police about his role in an accident in February because he was “scared of being deported back to Mexico,” Foley Police homicide investigator Jack Nelson testified in court today.

Carlos Padilla, 28, originally told officers on the scene that he was not driving a 2002 Ford Focus that collided with a motorcycle but later recanted his story to a Spanish-speaking investigator, Nelson said.
