[Ed. – Another American death made possible by an alien living in the U.S. illegally]
A 25-year-old Argentinean woman who fatally struck a 13-year-old girl Wednesday morning did not have a valid driver’s license and was living in the United States on an expired visa, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies said Mariana Perez Borroto, of Kissimmee, was bicycling to Lake Marion Creek Middle School shortly after 7:45 a.m. when she was hit by a minivan being driven by Micaela Coronel on Homosassa Road.
Investigators said Borroto, who was critically injured, was flown to Orlando’s Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital, where she died. She would have turned 14 in two weeks.

Coronel said she had been living in Kissimmee since October on a “visitor pass” and provided deputies an Argentinian identification card, but she did not have a valid driver’s license in either country, deputies said.
Coronel said that about 80 percent of her windshield was covered in condensation when she struck Borroto, investigators said. They said she was driving her child to school when she crashed.
