Driver in Warren bus stop truck crash faces judge

- The man accused of running down six people at a bus stop in Warren earlier this week was in court Friday.

Gary Paul Daleo was behind the wheel of a Dodge Ram pickup truck when it slammed into a bus stop at 12 Mile and Van Dyke. Four people were pinned under his truck and five of the six victims remain hospitalized.

Daleo, 55, from Roseville, was arraigned on a six count felony warrant, facing three counts of reckless driving causing serious bodily impairment and three counts of operating while impaired causing serious bodily impairment.

Each count has a maximum penalty of five years in prison and or a $5,000 fine.

Daleo was arraigned before Judge Michael Chupa of 37th District Court where a not guilty plea was entered and bond was set at $70,000 cash or surety only. His next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 15.

At the time of the crash Wednesday, Daleo is seen on video climbing out of his truck at the scene and casually walking past the victims to go inside Subway to use the bathroom. Some of the victims were still pinned under his Ram at the time.

Subway employee Christopher Lofton witnessed the crash and spoke to FOX 2 that day.

"He walked in calm collected and used the bathroom, then walked right out." he said. "It was just terrible."
