A Bronx man has been charged in the death of a 65-year-old school bus driver who was beaten into a coma after a minor traffic accident.
The Bronx District Attorney’s Office said Thursday that a grand jury indicted 28-year-old Joey Scott on manslaughter and assault charges in the death of Juan DelValle, a grandfather who was about to retire.
DelValle was on his route when his bus clipped the side mirror on a double-parked car on June 11, 2012. Authorities say the car’s driver accosted and punched him, causing his head to hit the pavement. He died last week.
Scott is currently being held on $250,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned on the indictment on July 25, 2012.
