ALCO Transportation driver charged in death of coworker

The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office announced Wednesday that an ALCO Transportation driver has been charged with manslaughter for the death of a woman over the weekend.

Miho Saljic, 48, was charged Wednesday in connection to the death of Heather Warren.

Warren, 41, was run over and killed Saturday afternoon at U.S. Steel. According to prosecutor Kym Worthy, Saljic was backing up his semi-truck that was loaded with steel coils when he hit and killed the woman.

Warren, an employee of U.S. Steel, was allegedly hit by Saljic's semi-truck loaded with steel coils.

On Sunday, FOX 2's Dave Spencer spoke with Warren's family. Her brother also works at the plant and had to call their mother to deliver the news.

If convicted, Saljic could get 15 years in prison. He's expected to be arraigned Wednesday afternoon.

Saljic received a personal bond with a tether. He will have a preliminary examination date of May 5,2015 in 26th District Court. 

Producer's note: An earlier version identified Saljic as an employee of U.S. Steel.
