Robert Clark - the director of the movies "A Christmas Story" and "Porky's" - and his adult son were killed on Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) in Pacific Palisades (home of celebrities such as Arnold Schwarzenegger) yesterday in head-on car collision. The driver of the other car was Hector Velazquez-Nava, who was driving without a license.
Now, Eric Leonard of KFI-AM reports that Nava is an illegal alien. He has no immigration record, but apparently a more thorough search is being performed to determine whether he's been previously deported under another name.
While the Los Angeles Times spends several paragraphs on the two victims' biographies ("'A Christmas Story' director dies in crash" by Valerie Reitman and Andrew Blankstein), they don't appear to have covered the immigration-related aspects, and, based on their past actions they probably never will.
