A woman from Guatemala who was deported after a fatal school bus crash in Lyon County faces federal charges for illegally re-entering the U-S, using an illegal “green card,” plus social security fraud. 35-year-old Olga Franco del Cid was convicted of multiple felony counts for running a stop sign in Cottonwood in 2008 and hitting a school bus, killing four students. She served eight years of a 12-and-a-half-year prison sentence and was deported back to Guatemala in 2016. On a tip authorities arrested Franco several weeks ago at her residence in Inver Grove Heights. Illegally re-entering the U-S after deportation is a felony that carries up to a 20-year federal prison sentence.
