UPDATE: November 27, 2017 08:30 AM Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center 030 PRELIM SETTING/RESETTING

October 3, 2017 08:30 AM Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center 030 PRELIM SETTING/RESETTING. It could be rescheduled.

06/19/2017 July 19, 2017 08:30 AM Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center 030 PRELIM SETTING/RESETTING. No other upcoming hearings scheduled at this time. No trial date has been set.

06/01/2017 Prelim reset for July 19, 2017. They're still waiting on the CHP investigation report.

"In that case which is separate and unrelated to Tuesday’s arrest, a Whittier man appeared in court briefly Wednesday charged with murder in a crash that killed three people including two Santa Clarita Valley residents more than a year ago.

Dealio Lockhart, 35, of Whittier, charged with murder in a crash that killed Brian Lewandowski, 18, Michelle Littlefield, 19, both of the SCV, appeared in Los Angeles Superior Court to set a date for a preliminary hearing – again.

Lockhart appeared in March to set a date for a preliminary only to have it postponed until May 30.

On Wednesday, his case was postponed again.  This time, he’s ordered to appear back in court July 19 to set a date for his preliminary hearing.

During a preliminary hearing, prosecutors present evidence in the case, and the defense can respond, after which the judge will decide if the case should go to trial.

Deputy District Attorney Mike Blake told The Signal Wednesday that the Lockhart case “was put over until July.”

Blake said he is still waiting on a “comprehensive” scientific study by California Highway Patrol investigators into the deadly crash that claimed the lives of three young people.

Lockhart is suspected of racing his Dodge Challenger with another driver on Feb. 27, 2016, in Commerce, causing a chain-reaction collision that killed two Valencia residents and a UPS truck driver from Mira Loma

Littlefield and Lewandowski, the son of a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department homicide detective, were passengers in a Nissan with two other young people who were critically injured.

All four occupants of the Nissan were employees of Six Flags Magic Mountain returning from a trip to Disneyland.

UPS truck driver, Scott Treadway, 52, of Mira Loma, was also killed in the crash."

https://signalscv.com/2017/05/31/prosecutors-pursue-speed-racing-cases-court/

"Lockhart has yet to face his preliminary arraignment due to a request by defense attorneys to await the results of an investigation by California Highway Patrol officers’ MAIT unit. The Multidisciplinary Accident Investigation Teams conducts thorough, specialized investigations that often span several months.

Prosecutor Michael Blake noted the collision was extremely complex, and involved more than 10 vehicles. The report was expected to be completed soon, according to officials."

UPDATE: Preliminary hearing postponed to May 31, 2017.

"Prosecutors waiting on a “comprehensive” scientific study by California Highway Patrol investigators into the deadly crash that claimed the lives of three young people, including two Valencia residents, were compelled to reschedule a court hearing in the murder case Thursday.

Dealio Lockhart, 35, of Whittier, charged with murder in a crash that killed Brian Lewandowski, 18, Michelle Littlefield, 19, both of the Santa Clarita Valley, appeared Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court to set a date for a preliminary hearing, but that date was put off until May 31.

Both Lewandowski and Littlefield had also been enrolled as students at College of the Canyons.

“We’re waiting for a report from the investigator at the CHP,” Deputy District Attorney Michael Blake told The Signal Thursday.

“We had an expert go through it,” Blake said, referring to the deadly crash and noting the study would provide a thorough analysis of it.

“This analysis done by the CHP is comprehensive with a lot of science,” he said.

Lockhart, who pleaded not guilty early last year to the charges filed against him, appeared in Los Angeles Superior Court Monday to set a date for a preliminary hearing.

During a preliminary hearing, prosecutors present evidence in the case, and the defense can respond, after which the judge will decide if the case should go to trial.

Lockhart is suspected of racing his Dodge Challenger with another driver on Feb. 27, 2016, in Commerce, causing a chain-reaction collision that killed two Valencia residents and a UPS truck driver from Mira Loma.

Littlefield and Lewandowski, the son of a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department homicide detective, were passengers in a Nissan with two other young people who were critically injured.

All four occupants of the Nissan were employees of Six Flags Magic Mountain returning from a trip to Disneyland.

UPS truck driver, Scott Treadway, 52, of Mira Loma, was also killed in the crash.

If convicted, Lockhart faces up to life in state prison.

Investigators with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and California Highway Patrol asked in March 2016, for the public’s help identifying the second driver involved in the fatal crash.

Lockhart remains the sole person charged in connection with the crash.

“As an ongoing investigation, I can tell you that every effort is being made to locate that other person,” Blake said.

05/05/2016 Next court date June 8, 2016 8:30 a.m. preliminary setting, resetting.

05/03/2016: CHP crackdown on street racers. Many people arrested, cars impounded.

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-chp-street-racing-arrests-20160503-story.html

05/02/2016: Updated from sheriff department investigation. Dealio Lockhart showed no remorse at the scene. He didn't try to help people. He stayed in his car with his phone. Based on the time certain accounts wend dead and photos, videos were removed or hidden, Dealio Lockhart was using his phone at the crash site to remove or hide his online social media accounts which showed him racing, speeding, breaking the law... Lockhart videotaped himself driving, racing, speeding, doing donuts. Maybe he was videotaping that night again. See the videos below for evidence.

"Adding insult to real-life injury and death, detectives say Lockhart displayed no concern for what happened, not even offering to assist the injured.
"We have witnesses say he was in his car looking for his phone," said Boskovich. "That speaks volumes to me at what type of person this was.""

04/18/2016: Video interview with Alfonso Morillo. He was asleep during the accident and woke up in USC hospital. He had brain damage, fractured his neck, ruptured spleen and a broken arm. He's hoping to be able to go home soon to continue with his recovery. Anthony Miramonte is slowly coming out of his coma.

Anthony Miramonte is still in a coma in the hospital. People are praying that he will eventually wake up. Below is Willy Littlefield's blog about his daughter Michelle and the others involved in the crash.

It's listed as preliminary hearing but I'm sure the prelim will be postponed quite a few times. There are lots of witnesses, evidence and more investigation to be done. I'm sure Dealio Lockhart had a ton of video of him racing, speeding, driving recklessly to be investigated. I wonder if he had any apps that saved his driving, racing record like those running apps.

Court Name: LOS ANGELES MUNI CT DIV 30

04/06/2016 http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/Commerce-5-Freeway-Fatal-Street-Race-Crash-374806641.html

Dealio pleaded not guilty to all counts. His attorney asked his bail to be reduced from $6.2M to $250K. Attorney gave the judge some letters people wrote in support of Dealio. Judge refused to lower the bail. Judge Upinder Kalra said "Good people do bad things and there are consequences.

"Deputy District Attorney Michael Blake told the judge that Lockhart was "playing Russian roulette" with his 4,000-pound Dodge Challenger, which was traveling at 127 mph 2 1/2 seconds before the crash."

That means Dealio lied to the police at the scene about his speed. 127 mph on a crowded freeway?!

"This was an 11-mile race," the prosecutor said, noting that it stretched from Beverly Boulevard to Washington Boulevard. "This was not a situation where you're dealing with an empty freeway."

They were racing for 11 miles? Dealio definitely knew the guy!

Arraignment was today in criminal court building court M30. Dealio is due back in court May 18, 2016.

04/04/2016 Video of Dealio Lockhart which he partially filmed doing a burnout, donuts, driving recklessly on a public street.


Video of Dealio Lockhart driving in "GODZILLA!" mood. These videos are so prophetic.


I bet there is a good chance Dealio was filming his racing right before the crash. He probably deleted it from his phone at the crash scene when he deleted, deactivated all of his social media sites.

This is just to show how out of control this "fast and furious" driving has gotten. In this Instagram account are videos of people illegally street racing, having accidents, hitting people with their cars, doing donuts, peeling out ... here in Los Angeles. I see license plates. There actually is a street racing task force in LA. I think there is only one or two officers in that dept. I can only imagine what videos Dealio had on his phone, home computer. I would bet it's a lot of this stuff. https://www.instagram.com/4.8jayy/

While I was in Instagram I just noticed that people took Dealio's photos out of his Instagram account @29images and posted them on Instagram. In this pic Dealio took a drone shot of members of the Mustang club who'd just done donuts in the street.

03/16/2016: An off duty police officer helped save the life of one victim Gonzalez. So thankful that there are good people in the world like this. The UPS truck landed on top of the front of Gonzalez SUV. The officer got him out in the nick of time. Gonzales is the one who reported that the UPS driver Treadway survived the impact. Treadway got out of the truck and started running while taking his burning clothes off. Sadly the UPS driver did not survive.

http://abc7.com/news/man-meets-off-duty-officer-who-pulled-him-from-burning-5-fwy-wreckage/1247791/

03/14/2016: The two victims who survived the crash and were in comas are improving.

"Littlefield’s mother, Gigi, told The Signal Monday she and her husband keep in touch with the families of both survivors and visit them in the hospital.

“They are both improving,” she said.

Miramontes and Morillo were taken to a separate hospitals on the day of the crash, where each remained in a coma for at least two weeks.

“Alfonso is out of his coma and got a chance to open his eyes while we were there four days ago,” Littlefield said Monday.

The other survivor, Miramontes, remained in a coma, she said, but “he’s getting better.”

Littlefield said doctors told her and her husband that the first two weeks immediately following the crash were highly critical. Either survivor would likely improve if they made it past the first couple of weeks, she said."

03/13/2016: If you have any information about Dealio, the other racer, the accident, other drivers..., please, send to the CHP, Los Angeles Sheriff Dept, UPS attorney/investigator and the attorney for the father of Michelle Littlefield, David Lehr.

Michelle Littlefield's father Willy has started a blog to share memories of his daughter to help him start to get through some of the grief. Here it is http://michellemarylinlittlefield.blogspot.com/ Please, be kind to this grieving father. If I find out that anyone has sent him any threats or unkind posts, I will show him how to identify the sender like I've been doing here.

03/09/2016: Brian and Michelle's funerals were March 3 and March 5 respectively. Scott Treadway's funeral is this Sunday March 13, 2016. Saturday is a Celebration Of Life from high school friends. Teamsters Local 396 are arranging some of the events. His family asks UPS people to wear their "browns." Dates, times are changing so check these links which are more up to date. His two brothers arranged the funeral. https://www.facebook.com/TeamstersLocal396 . Here is one gofundme account. https://www.gofundme.com/s7s6n9bg

I will try to post the condition of the other two victims. I believe they are both still hospitalized. I don't know if one is still in a coma or not. Hopefully they are recovering without any serious long term effects.

UPDATE 03/03/2016: Found the information on the speeding ticket in San Bernardino County. The People of the State of California vs Dealio Lockhart. Case #30412PQDL, Barstow Traffic, 05/22/2012, infraction, closed.

Officer Phillip Valero. They have Lockhart's middle name as "Menikick" when it's "Menilick." VC22348(B) speed limit... citation 30412PQ, statute 22348(B). Lockhart plead 07/31/2012 Pro Tem Judge, speeding over 100 mph, speed limit was 70. He plead guilty. Judicial Officer John B Gibson. Convicted. Lockhart was going 105 mph. 09/20/2012 Conversion event. Lockhart paid a fine of $890.00. There was a transaction assessment 02/08/2016. I got the data from portal.sb-court.org search criminal.

Barstow Traffic means it was on city streets and not the freeway. CHP handles freeway arrests. That means Dealio was going 105 mph on a city highway. He plead guilty and was fined $890. The next time he speeds he kills three people and severely injures two more. He didn't learn his lesson from his previous speeding tickets.
_________________

As usual every time I write about someone accused of a heinous crime their family and friends attack, threaten and defame me. This time is no different. While they think they are anonymous, they are not. Dealio's family, friends, members of SoCal Challengers and his drone friends are attacking me. This is why articles such as these written for media generally don't have the writer's name on it. When I wrote about illegal car racer who killed fortunately only himself Richard Pananian his relatives and coworkers threatened to kill me. They didn't realize they weren't anonymous. Two were fired when I sent their comments to their bosses. I find it very disturbing when people support someone who allegedly murdered three and severely injured two more. They are basically condoning his behavior which caused people to die.
__________________

Here are some of his more recent posts on his Instagram which he appeared to have deleted immediately after the crash. He mentions his friends, partners in crime in his posts. His friends comment back. Every single one supported his photos and videos of racing, doing burnouts, donuts, speeding, illegally enhancing his car... The photos also show the exact location where they were taken. It includes the exact time and camera settings even when he took them with his iPhone. He had been racing on the track. If only he'd kept his racing there. These are just some of the more recent posts he made on Instagram. These people are as stupid as the kids who murdered Xinran Ji. They bragged about their crimes on their public internet pages which I saved before they deleted them. I sent them to the LAPD. Dealio said February through May is DWTS. Not this year. Guy had a lot going for him and he threw it all away just to illegally race and now three are dead and two are critically injured.

_____________

Dealio Lockhart intends to plead innocent and fight the charges. Lockhart admits he was racing and caused the accident. He just states he never intended anyone to be killed. Dealio or his family and friends hired a private law firm. He has more than one lawyer Dmitry Gorin of KegLawyers.com who will try to get his bail reduced to $1,000,000. This is not a court appointed public defender. I would bet the retainer fee would be at least $20,000. I don't know if his insurance would pay for this lawyer. From the article,

"Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Sergio C. Tapia II ordered Lockhart to be held in lieu of $6.2 million bail while awaiting arraignment April 6. “At the next court date in April, we’re going to be asking for a bail reduction. We’re going to be pleading not guilty to the charges,” one of Lockhart’s attorneys, Dmitry Gorin, told reporters after the brief hearing, adding that he believes “bail of a million dollars or less would be very reasonable in a case such as this.”

"Meanwhile, Lockhart’s attorney said outside court, “In this case, it’s clear Mr. Lockhart did not intend to hurt anyone, did not want anyone to be injured whatsoever…we understand this is a tragedy. This is a horrible, horrible situation.”

Gorin said it’s his understanding that Lockhart worked full-time in the entertainment industry as a cameraman, and said he “does not have any record of violence or history of hurting anyone else.”
The defense attorney said the charges are “inconsistent” with the way his client is known in the community and come as a shock to his family, friends and co-workers.

Gorin – himself a former prosecutor – said he expects the District Attorney’s Office to treat Lockhart fairly, despite one of the victims being the son of a well-known sheriff’s homicide lieutenant.
“… We’re going to do everything we can to fight these legal charges against him and determine whether the government can actually prove these charges beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law,” the defense attorney said."

http://egpnews.com/2016/03/man-faces-murder-charges-in-5fwy-crash/

As per Lockhart's resume I believe he was no longer with Dancing With The Stars. I think he was just a private phtographer, videographer as he asked for work and clients every time he posted a photo.

Whatever the case he had money for this attorney. This attorney intends to take the case all the way to trial. This means the public and family will be forced to endure a long and gruesome trial experience.

While Lockhart didn't intend to kill anyone he knew his behavior was extremely risky and could cause death. He was in a car accident November 2015. He had two speeding tickets. In one case he was going over 100 mph which is considered reckless driving.

California Penal Code - Vehicle Code Section 23103, Reckless Driving is "23103.  (a)  A person who drives a vehicle upon a highway in willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property is guilty of reckless driving."

In this case Lockhart was (1) speeding, (2) racing another vehicle, (3) made unsafe lane changes, (4) attempted to make another unsafe lane change, lost control of his vehicle and ran into the UPS truck.

Funeral services for Michelle Littlefield will be held March 8, 2016 3:00 p.m. at Eternal Valley.

UPDATE 03/02/2016: Bail officially raised to $6.2 million. Official case # is BA44455201. The number "01" on the end reflects that he is defendant one, the first defendant charged. Defendant two is the other driver who is still at large.

Below is updated LASD info. The case still doesn't show up in lacourt.org His next hearing is April 6, 2016 at the criminal court building. If he pleads guilty, cuts a plea deal, there may not be a preliminary trial or trial. Family and friends of the victims would be spared a gruesome and emotional public trial. I highly doubt that will happen. I've watched cases where defendants admitted to viciously attacking victim Xinran Ji who died yet they still plead innocent. There were even multiple videos of the event, positive DNA evidence and the defendants ratted each other out. They still plead innocent and forced his family and friends to sit through some truly gruesome evidence. Even though Lockhart admitted to speeding, racing, losing control of his car and hitting the UPS truck which caused the chain reaction fiery crash, he may go to trial in hopes his sentence might be reduced in some way. Even if Lockhart plead guilty, defendant two may plead innocent necessitating a trial. If someone is involved in reckless behavior which causes death they are still guilty of murder even if it was not premeditated. In this case it was gross reckless driving.

Dealio Lockhart car crash 5 freeway fatal los angeles california murder reckless driving


Someone sent in a question about my "qualifications" to write about crime or cars. I went through the police academy in 2005. We were taught how to investigate crimes, crime scenes, write reports, testify on the stand... I have given expert testimony in such cases. I have also been a life long car and motorcycle lover and a member of a few clubs. Whenever a member displayed reckless behavior such as doing wheelies on the freeway, racing, burnouts, donuts...we always told them to immediately stop such behavior or leave the group. That is what responsible people do. I went through the SoCal Challengers sites. There are, were pics, videos of them illegally racing cars on the street, doing donuts on public streets, having drifting contests on public streets... The members encouraged that behavior as "cool." I have saved all of this and gave it to the CHP and LA County Sheriffs.

UPDATE 03/01/2016: One thing for all to keep in mind is that as far as I know Dealio Lockhart is the one who gave the info to CHP about what he and the other driver did. Dealio said he was going 80-90, came up behind a car going slow and was racing a Charger. The first two things he said were absolutely false according to five witnesses which were immediately in front of, beside and behind Dealio. He was most likely going 100-120. The car ahead of him was going the speed limit and then sped way up so they wouldn't be rear ended as per the driver and his wife. This makes me believe that the car was probably not a Charger. I would bet it was a Challenger perhaps from the SoCal Challenger club. I think he doesn't want to snitch out a buddy driver. I say this because both Dealio and the SoCal Challenger club have scrubbed, deleted their websites, social media accounts of many photos, videos and posts. I saved all they deleted through cache and other means. They deleted these things immediately after the crash which is beyond suspicious. I'm positive truth and justice will prevail in this investigation. Just fyi I went through the police academy in 2005.

REWARD OFFERED TO FIND DRIVER IN 5 FREEWAY FATAL CAR RACING CRASH

March 1, 2016
(Los Angeles) County supervisors approved a $10,000 reward today for information that helps locate the second of two drivers who were allegedly racing on the Santa Ana (5) Freeway, triggering a fiery crash that killed three people, including the 18-year-old son of a sheriff’s homicide detective.

The Commerce crash — which occurred at 12:01 a.m. Saturday when a big
rig went airborne after it was clipped by a Dodge Challenger whose driver was
allegedly racing with another motorist — killed Brian Lewandowski, Michelle
Littlefield, 19, and UPS driver Scott Treadway, 52.

Supervisor Hilda Solis recommended the reward.

“Detectives assigned to the case have identified and arrested the
driver of one of the vehicles engaged in the speed contest causing the
collision, however, they have not received any viable clues regarding the
identity of the second vehicle which fled the scene,” Solis said.

The Challenger driver — Dealio Lockhart, 35, of Whittier — remained
jailed today on $1 million bail after being arrested at the scene and booked on
suspicion of three counts of vehicular manslaughter, among other offenses.

The driver still being sought was behind the wheel of a Dodge Charger,
according to the California Highway Patrol.

Lewandowski and Littlefield were in a northbound gray Nissan that had
its top sheared off when the big rig went airborne after being clipped in
southbound lanes near Garfield Avenue by the Challenger. They were returning
home after a day with friends at Disneyland.

The driver of the Nissan was hospitalized in a coma at St. Francis
Medical Center in Lynwood. He was identified in media reports as 21-year-old
Tony Miramontes of Van Nuys. A fourth person in the car was identified as
Alfonso Morillo, who survived but was hospitalized in critical condition.

Anyone with additional information was asked to call the Sheriff’s
Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500, the California Highway Patrol’s East Los
Angeles station, (323) 980-4600 or Crime Stoppers, (800) 222-TIPS (8477).

Lockhart bail was just raised to $6.2 million bail. He is due back in court on April 6, 2016. I doubt Lockhart or his family can post bail.

District Attorney Press Release:

March 1, 2016: Driver Suspected in Fatal Street Race Charged with Murder

Contact:
Jane Robison, Assistant Media Chief
(213) 257-2000
JRobison@da.lacounty.gov

A Whittier man suspected of racing with another driver on the I-5 Freeway and causing a fiery multi-vehicle crash that killed three people was charged today with second-degree murder and other counts, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Dealio Lockhart (dob 6/25/80) is scheduled to be arraigned late this afternoon in Department 30 at the Foltz Criminal Justice Center in case BA444552. Prosecutors will ask that bail be set at $3.2 million.

Deputy District Attorney Michael Blake with the Target Crimes Division is prosecuting the case.

Lockhart is suspected of racing his Dodge Challenger with another driver shortly after midnight Saturday near downtown Los Angeles. One of the vehicles lost control, causing a UPS truck to go airborne and land over the center median.

Killed were Brian Lewandowski, 18, the son of a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department homicide detective, and Michelle Littlefield, 19, both passengers in a Nissan that had its top sheared off by the UPS truck. The UPS driver, Scott Treadway, 52, also was killed.

In addition to the three fatalities, four others were seriously injured. Two males in the Nissan were injured and remain in critical condition. A man and a woman who were in separate cars also were injured.

Lockhart is charged with three counts of second-degree murder and four counts of reckless driving on a highway causing a specified injury.

If convicted, Lockhart faces up to life in state prison.

The case remains under investigation by the California Highway Patrol."

If you want to follow the court calendar to watch proceedings, here is the case number BA444552. Go to the link below, put in the number and you can see the calendar. All hearings will be quick and boring except preliminary trial which will probably be rescheduled quite a few times. I suggest you call the court room the night before to make sure it's still on before you drive down here and pay for expensive parking. It's not yet in the system but will probably be tomorrow. Then go here and see the schedule.

http://www.lacourt.org/criminalcalendar/ui/CalendarList.aspx

All of the hearings and trials are public. They will be held here,
http://www.lacourt.org/courthouse/info/CCB 

Parking is $18/day. Enter on the first floor. There are metal detectors. Obviously no knives, guns, all in one tools, pocket knifes... You can keep your shoes on but purses, folders, wallet, keys...go in a bin through scanning. The schedule is on the wall with court and room numbers. If you can't read it, ask the guy at the info desk.

All hearings start at 8:30 a.m. Many hearings scheduled at the same time. The first hearing generally doesn't start until 9:30 a.m. Ask the court clerk for a better estimate. They call incarcerated people first. They will enter through the back of the court into a glassed off area with police guards. If it's just a hearing, they will maybe state their name and answer yes/no. Then they go back to their jail cell. It'd be a waste to go to the hearings. The results of the hearings can be found online.

If you go to the preliminary trial, family and friends of the accused may be there. They generally put defendant's friends/family on one side and victim's on the other. This is because sometimes people's emotions get the better of them. Security officers will be in the court room.

The preliminary hearing is so the DA can prove to the judge there is enough evidence for the case to proceed to trial. In Dialio pleads guilty, this may not happen though I doubt it. They will warn the court before they show graphic evidence such as the crime scene and autopsy photos. I suggest family and close friends leave the room for that part. You can get a copy of the minutes and read it without seeing graphic photos or videos. They will call you back in when that is over.

There will be press at the hearings, preliminary trial and trial. They will interview people as they leave the court. Lawyers or representatives of the deceased, injured may call a press conference at the same time. I'll update this page as things progress.

Dealio Lockhart was charged with second-degree murder per the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office today.

"Dealio Lockhart, 35, will be arraigned Tuesday afternoon at the Foltz Criminal Justice Center. Prosecutors will ask for his bail to be set at $3.2 million. He was charged with three counts of second-degree murder and four counts of reckless driving on a highway, causing specified injury."

As expected his bail will be increased from $1,000,000 to $3.2M. His family and friends can't make bail so he will sit in jail until trial. The three counts of second degree murder are for the three people who died. The four counts of reckless driving are for the three murders and one severely injured victim who is still in a coma. If convicted, he is looking at life in state prison.

The CHP (California Highway Patrol) investigator is currently overloaded with tips and witnesses. They are referring people to Los Angeles County Sheriff investigators who are aiding in the investigation. You can contact the main number (323) 890 5500 or Detective Louie Aquilera at (323) 890 5515. You can mail evidence to Los Angeles Sheriff Dept,  1 Cupania Circle, Monterey Park, CA 91755. I verified the detective, phone number and address as Los Angeles County Sheriff. Can't be too careful. Share this contact info with any witnesses or people who can provide any information to help the investigators. Thanks.

More information is coming to light. There are videos of these people racing. They use dash cams, GoPro cameras, long selfie sticks while driving recklessly to videotape themselves racing on city streets. Fortunately they videotaped all of their license plates, faces and connected that to their user accounts and names.

The SoCal Challengers club was not just a social club. I believe this illegal, reckless behavior was not only condoned but encouraged as a "cool" thing to do. Much more to come which I'll share after the CHP gets the info and identities. If anyone has any info, the CHP number for this investigation is (323) 980 4600. There is more than one detective on the case. Thank you to everyone who has been sending in tips.

UPDATE 02/29/2016: A comment came in about the SoCalChallengers car club. No one is blaming the club for what Dealio did. It was not a club activity though he was a member. Still, the main photo for the club is the club members standing in front of burnout and donuts marks on the road. That makes it appear they condone that behavior. Years ago I watched some burnouts, donuts... It's very dangerous and considered reckless driving. The only club rules are don't drink excessively, no illegal drugs, no fighting, vandalism, obscenities or theft. There is nothing in the code of conduct about illegal racing, speeding on public streets, burnouts/donuts on public streets, driving under the influence, driving recklessly.... Based on the forum messages they talk about having drift and burnout contests on public streets. Drifting is also very dangerous. That is irresponsible behavior which may have encouraged Dealio.

More information from witnesses. The UPS driver survived the crash. The truck driver was able to get out of the big rig, but then died from his injuries. “He was on fire, he went over the center divider to the other side, taking his clothes off," Javier Gonzalez, a witness, said.

More victims named. Alfonso Morillo, 20, of Port Hueneme. Thomas Y. Kwon of Fontana, Javier C. Gonzalez of Los Angeles, and Nicole L. Ruiz of Thousand Oaks. They have varying degrees of injury though two are in critical condition.

Dealio Lockhart had a criminal record for speeding according to LA Times.

"Lockhart has a history of excessive speeding. In 2012, he was convicted in San Bernardino County of driving faster than 100 mph, court records show. In 2014, he was convicted of speeding in Utah, according to the DMV. He was also involved in a car accident in November in Whittier, DMV officials said."

Fourth victim identified as 21 year old driver of the Nissan Anthony "Tony" Miramontes. Anthony has been in a coma ever since the accident. He was the best friend of Michelle who died.

Witnesses give statements,

Posted on Facebook page for UPS driver's union. "My heart is broke for this man  (UPS driver Scott Treadway) and his family and the other victims. My husband Robert Feuerstein was driving the "slower" vehicle that the reports keep mentioning. We saw the entire thing unfold just feet from us and I called 911 immediately. We have made several attempts to talk to someone at CHP to give our statement and they have not called back or attempted to reach us (I tried the same but the CHP hotline is closed on weekends. Why do they even post it in the articles or info requests?). If UPS is conducting their own investigation we would like to give our statement. The current report is completely downplaying the recklessness of the street racer. We were going the speed limit and that car nearly rear-ended us. I can't say exactly how fast the street racing car was going but it was in excess of 100. My best guess would be 110-120. He came up on us so fast that my husband started yelling that we're going to get hit. My husband stepped on the gas to try to avoid being rear ended. At the very last second that driver veered to the right and hit the UPS truck with incredible force. Please let us know if we can help clear up the details."

It's clear that Dealio's car got under the UPS truck which caused it to launch in the air, cross the center median. Look at damaged car photo above.

So nice caring people want to help the investigation and the victims' families.

02/28/16 The third victim has been identified as 18 year old Brian Lewandowski. His father Victor Lewandowski is a Los Angeles Sheriff Department homicide investigator. The other alleged suspect in the crash fled the scene and is still at large. He was able to drive his car away so no license plate number. I'm sure they will find the guy based on security cams.

Probably the only reason Dealio didn't flee is because his car was totaled and couldn't be driven. A sad note. The Lewandowski family loved going to Disneyland. They went often and took many pics showing how much they enjoyed it. Brian suggested going to Disneyland because it was the "Happiest place on earth" and he wanted his friends to enjoy it.

Scott Treadway, Michelle Littlefield, Brian Lewandowski, victims of the fiery crash on the 5 freeway 

One of the victims killed in the Nissan was identified by her family as 19-year-old Michelle Littlefield pictured below with her mother. Her family said Littlefield worked at Six Flags Magic Mountain along with her three friends. Michelle was their only child. Littlefield's family said the group had spent the day at Disneyland and was heading home when the crash occurred. The two people riding in the back seat of the Nissan were killed. The two in the front were critically injured. After the crash some victims were seen running around on fire. The UPS driver killed was 52 year old Scott Treadway of Mira Loma, California. Scott had worked for the UPS for 30 years. Scott had lost his wife recently and was working a night shift in order to take care of his ailing mother during the daytime per his truck driver friends.



Dealio Lockhart admitted to police he was racing. The suspected racers were believed to be going 85 to 90 mph, KCAL9’s Joy Benedict reported. “The person we have in custody did admit to street racing,” CHP officer Doris Peniche said. “He observed a similar looking vehicle, it caught his attention and they began to race.”

Dealio Lockhart was just booked into the inmate system. He is Dealio Minilick Lockhart born June 25, 1980 in Detroit, Michigan. Black male aged 35 with black hair and brown eyes 6' tall 170 lbs. He was charged with a felony with $1,000,000 bail. I doubt he'll make bail. They may even raise it at the next hearing which is March 1, 2016 8:30 a.m. at location below. Much more information and photos below. Dealio was an admitted racer who bragged about driving recklessly. This really is something a 20-25 year old would do, not a 35 year old.

If you want more current information, go to this link and search by name. There's a chance his first appearance may be rescheduled. Check the site and call the court M30 before you drive over there if you want to watch. It's common to reschedule especially in cases like this. If charged Dealio Lockhart be looking at gross vehicular manslaughter with multiple fatalities.

Dealio Lockhart suspect vehicular manslaughter car crash los angeles california


Raw video taken of aftermath of the crash by a private party. Nothing gory, just a bunch of crushed, burning cars. You can hear them using power saws to get into the burned vehicles to retrieve the bodies. They generally take dead bodies out of vehicles before moving the vehicles.



Dealio Lockhart full name Dealio Menilick Lockhart born June 25, 1980 in Michigan was involved in a fiery crash February 27, 2016 on the 5 freeway in Commerce. Dealio was racing his Dodge Challenger against another person in a Dodge Charger on the freeway. The fiery crash occurred at 12:01 a.m. Lockhart was arrested at the scene while the driver of the other vehicle fled the scene.

Dealio Lockhart must have used his one call to call a personal friend. Lockhart instructed that friend to take down all of his websites and profiles. As I look at the time the sites were taken down it appears Dealio took down the sites after the accident at the crash site. Fortunately Google cache and the web archive exist. There are saved copies of all of his car club, auto racing, burnouts and photography websites. There is video of him videotaping illegal activities on public roads. I will bet the person he was racing was a member of the SoCal Challenger club https://socalchallengers.com/ which he just joined. He talks about racing, speeding, doing burnouts in his car club pages.

While looking through Dealio Lockhart's many websites and profiles he was a member of the SoCal Challenger and Charger club. He participated in rides and shows. Below is an image Dealio Lockhart posted in some of his websites. It is believed to be Dealio's vehicle which started the fiery crash which killed three people and seriously injured others. Dealio posted this publicly with his license plate to show off his custom vanity plate "313BRUH" so the number was not blurred."313" is reference to Detroit. It's the area code. "BRUH" is "brother." He's a brother from Detroit.

Dealio Lockhart is from Detroit. He received a bachelor of arts in 2006 from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

From his "about me" page in his website which he's since locked up, This photo goes with this info,

"Please don't think I'm some pompous, arrogant photographer who thinks he's number one.  I'm just a Lion's fan with an awesome custom jersey : )  Secondly, my name is Dealio Lockhart, pronounced "Dee-ah-low."  You wouldn't believe the number of variations I've heard.  It's a great conversation starter.

Now that that's cleared up, let me tell you a bit about myself.  Originally from Michigan, I moved to California, via Florida, to begin my endeavors in the wonderful world of television production.  I've worked my way up to field producer on Dancing with the Stars and I'm loving EVERY bit of it.  Seriously... such an awesome show to work on.

But that's not the important part......

The important part is that I was introduced to an amazing little app that you may have heard of:

Instagram.

This is what did it for me.  This was the smoking gun that made me want to get my feet wet in the realm of photography.  After a few weeks of being the inevitable "IG Newbie" (Yes, I am guilty of taking a selfie here and there), I discovered that there were serious photographers out there with amazing pictures to share, and I thought to myself how cool it'd be if I could do the same.  So I started using my iPhone to take landscape photos around Los Angeles and posted them.  I have to say, the feedback was really good.

Now I was hooked.

I took more and more iPhone snaps and then decided it's time to get serious and bought my first DSLR.  After that, the rest is history.  I've loved photography ever since and continue to shoot.... everything... especially from the air.  I'm what you could say infatuated with the multi rotor world now.

Thanks Instagram!

With that said, have a look around.  If you'd like to purchase high resolution prints, need a photographer for your special events, need aerial or behind the scenes footage for your project, please feel free to contact me for rates.

Thank you for coming through and I hope you enjoy what you see!"

Dealio talks about racing his car on the track. I wish he'd done that instead of racing on the public freeway. Posted 15 days ago. He also admits he is the one who did donuts in the street.

29images Did y'all see today's sunset? Ridiculous. I drove by the Irwindale Speedway to see what it was all about. I wanna watch some races soon... And then...

More about Dealio Lockhart from his class yearbook at the University of Michigan. He was a film student.

"Some people went for the subtle-yet-stylish approach, like sophomore film major Dealio Lockhart and his " still-growing " collection of baseball caps. Lockhart also proved that the reasons for self-expression need not be intensely political or socially conscious ones. " When I was about 1 5 or 1 6, I started watching major league baseball and became a big fan. I have seven hats so far; I hope to get all 29 teams. " Even though Lockhart ' s hat collection was simply a cool hobby, he did express great favor for all the different forms of individuality and self-expression here at the University. " I think it ' s very important that we all have our own individuality, our own personality. It wouldn ' t be any fun if everyone was in conformi ty. "

Dealio Lockhart, car crash challenger, fiery dead victims
Dealio Lockhart's mother is Vanessa Lockhart a school teacher in Detroit, Michigan. His father is Dean Lockhart who was a truck driver. As Dealio confessed to racing he basically pled guilty to three counts of gross vehicular manslaughter. Sad all the way around.

People often ask me why I do such in depth investigative reports on certain crimes, incidents. I've been doing this over 30 years now. I'm always shocked when people commit heinous crimes and really want to try to understand their motivation. I also want to use my investigative abilities learned through years of research in my field to help police and victims. I've seen some cases where the facts were right in front of the police or investigators' faces. Either they weren't allowed to do that research or there were politics involved. I also want to warn others who will come in contact with these people in the future. I used to just privately email, file my reports to authorities but even then sometimes the facts were not given to investigators or the court. I sent in reports of animal cruelty, security fraud, real estate fraud and the authorities didn't always act on it. Now I just post it out there for reporters, investigators, police, victims...

Below is a report from last year about the freeway racer who thankfully only killed himself with his body being lodged on a freeway sign. When I wrote about this all I could think about was that we were lucky no one else was killed but the idiot driver. I kept saying he could have killed more. Dealio did the same stupid thing and ended up killing three people, critically injuring two more and injuring others. Dealio didn't just kill people but he destroyed their entire families.

UPDATE: Dealio's 24 year old sister has now left six public comments in her own name and real profile which she demands that I post.  Her comments state paraphrased "I am Dealio's sister. I'm trying to get educated for a career. I don't know how you know my name." Every bit of information on this page is public. I never post private, confidential information. Every single Facebook, MySpace and other profiles she made are set to public in her full real name with her brother's name as well. I emailed BreAnna Lockhart stating if I post her comments, her profiles, pages will be public. Instead of replying to the email she posts three five more public comments. She said she wanted the comments posted. She wanted her name involved in this. She even said her brother was guilty. Here is the comment I sent to her two days ago. She still insisted she wanted to be publicly known and her comments posted. I haven't posted them because they are full of childish language, spelling and grammatical errors and crazy explanations why she calls everyone racist names.

* Comments are now moderated because there were quite a few nasty racist comments and some threatening ones. Dealio will be paying the price for his alleged crime if found guilty. He already admitted he was racing. To race on a highway in LA is really stupid. With our traffic you will have to zig zag around cars which is very dangerous. Plus it was midnight. Maybe some drivers were drunk or tired.

  1. I use to street race back in the 60s & 70s; went out where there was no traffic and never had a problem. Grew out of that crap WAY before I was 35. Sounds like this idiot had the world by the tail. Now it's all gone and so is he.

  15. I was at the scene when it all happened, at around 12:01am I was coming from Washington exit... I remember having to slow down when I was trying to merge in to traffic when I saw couple cars coming really fast.... For some reason that's the only time I got nervous and scared because of how fast they were going, making me feel that something bad is going to happen and then I heard all this really loud sounds of cars hitting each other and I had to watch the road and slow down fast & safely while I saw two more cars slammed each other on the side of the road, the white pick up hitting another car trying to avoid the big pile of wreck in the middle. Then all I saw is the truck flipped over and started fire really fast and smashed cars along with it on the road then couple minutes later I started hearing explosions from the truck that made me really really really scared..... I was crying the whole time and I had to call my husband as soon as after the accident happened when I was able to park safely showing to him everything on face time and asked me to go far from the truck where I am safer..... I saw the truck in front of me burning and it was very disheartening knowing that there are people there.... I was very traumatized and have been more more more careful & watchful of the road when I started driving since that Friday midnight.... We had to make a u turn and take Washington exit to go home and I was crying the whole time I was driving in that whole 35 min drive....... God bless the souls of those who perished and may the good lord heal those who are in critical condition and injured... And for those who witness this very tragic accident unfold in front of them including me I hope that this serves a huge lesson that we only have one precious life to live.... All that accident happened in split second, everything happened really fast and killed several people.... Let us always be grateful that we are alive and always show our loved ones that we love them. I am praying for the families of the victims..... And I hope that there is much heavier punishment for street racers...... We need to reevaluate our law on street racing and I really hope we do........

  16. How ironic in life that when you cross paths with people that you never know when you might see them again. Dealio, we met in May 2015, well we didn't actually "meet". I was crossing the corner of 6th and Spring as a pedestrian on a green light and you almost made me roadkill with a speeding right turn in your Challenger. You probably only stopped because you didn't want to get my blood splatter on your hood. I turned left to look at you and you gave me the middle finger and told me "walk faster b****". As you drove away I remember your ugly face and your license plate "313BRUH". The way you drive and have disregard for people shows you've probably have hurt other people before prior to you taking these 3 innocent lives. Are you sorry? No. Are you a good person? No. You finally got caught and now you will no longer be able to hurt anyone else. Everything coming to you, you deserve.

  22. Many people are condeming this one guy, Dealio. Well, thats easy to do. But lets look a bit deeper into the driving culture here in Los Angeles. We've got too many people on the roads for starters, too many incompetent drivers, a society of impatient selfish road users, and a sparse, uselss traffic enforcement which cant even educate people on how to use the road more civilly. Los Angeles promotes, indirectly, the ability for people to keep dying on its roads. There are road rules, learn them.

When you drive in traffic common sense tells you to drive cautiously and NOT to use the streets fora race track. Look at this guys history. He didn't care about anyone but himself and his childish needs. I hope he gets a long sentence that will give him time to realize how many innocent lives he destroyed. But honestly he seems so self centered that I doubt this will occur to him and he will blame everyone except himself.

    2. This was so unnecessary! Look how many lives were affected by this selfish immature self serving person. Why would anyone blame either the stat or the drivers on the road for this incident? When you get on a road that has traffic you shoul be extra aware of your surroundings. NOT racing on a public street or freeway. What an inconsiderate ass does that. Well now I hope he gets a lifetime in prison to decide if his ego was worth the destruction he caused to so many people!!! I have no illusions though, he will probably blame everyone BUT himself for what happened.

Such a precious young girl with a very bright life ahead of her...and then this thug of a person came along and snuffed out her life, her best friend's life, the UPS driver's life, leaving several others in the hospital in critical condition. And for what?! Michelle's family will never, ever be the same. Their lives will be forever altered, as will all the families and friends of those lost by this person's actions. To read about him and his sister literally turned my stomach. Seemingly no remorse. I would venture his only remorse was damaging his car and getting caught! I pray for justice.

Her comment regarding the car Lockhart was racing being another Challenger makes a lot of sense. An easy way to find out is to ask the witnesses if it was a 2 or 4 door because all late model Chargers are 4 door sedans and of course all Challengers only have 2 doors. I'm going to be checking this site regularly because there's a lot of great info here that hasn't been covered by the main stream media plus she's not afraid to give us her opinions which is refreshing. Keep up the good work, Nancy-oops, I mean Mary....

Putting a face and a story behind them really just brings it all into perspective. It could have been anybody. How many people don't drive on the freeways late at night?

  40. Dear Idiot,

    You are 35, you should have known better than to race on a freeway. I can tell from the photos of you on the internet that you clearly were in your 2nd childhood, and it is a crying shame that your 2nd childhood cut short the 1st childhood of the two teens you murdered. I pray God forgives you, I pray God uplifts the families you destroyed. You are a fool, an absolute fool. I'm sure you won't read this because your ass should be locked up for a good while. But if your momma happens to read this I hope she's thinking about how she should have helped you to grow up, because you are a definite embarrassment, loser, piece of crap, 1/2 man 1/2 boy punk, and 3 people are dead now because of you.

    I found Dealio's email address, dealio.lockhart@gmail.com, as part of his internet history from his purged website, 29images.com

    I think I want to email this letter to him. However, I most likely just want to get the words off my chest. This seems like an appropriate place to do so.

    Mary, thank you for putting this together. I too was shocked by the heinous recklessness of this crime. I too wanted to know more, it is the kind of situation that makes you ask, "why."

    My take away from this incident is to be a better driver. As I condem him, I can't help but think of my habit to be somewhat distracted behind the wheel for one reason or another. Each of us must make an effort to be more careful, so that we don't cause this kind of pain to others or ourselves.

This animal did something deplorable and should spend the rest of his miserable life behind bars, but the completely unrelated "before and after" photos show a burnout at an undisclosed location in no way connected to this incident, I am also an avid racer, there are photos of me doing burnouts as well, but from these photos you can't tell that I'm at the track(where this hobby belongs) anymore that this photo. This article is written by a self titled expert is no different that Al Sharpton or any other public figure running their mouths after a tragedy in an attempt to grab their 15 minutes of fame regardless of the genuine tragedy it sprung from. What sickens me is that this woman will likely succeed in her effort and see a surge of new business due to this advertisement poorly disguised as an "investigative report".

  47. This is a response to the SoCal Challenger club or their supporters that they do not participate in illegal racing. That is a complete lie. There is a sub-culture of Challengers in Downtown Los Angeles that race illegally on Bunker Hill, the Historic Core and the Arts District. There is a photo of Dealio under a bridge that I recognized as a prime illegal racing area between the railroad tracks and the demolished 6th Street Bridge. There are so many tire tread marks in that area and driving at night, you have to be really careful because they race without their headlights on. The reason that area is chosen is because its still a commercial zone and has easy access to the 5 freeway for a quick escape route. The commercial building and lack of lighting makes it easy to evade law enforcement and having hiding spots under the bridges prevents a police helicopter from spotting them. There is a “posse” of Challengers that race through the Historic Core constantly. I have no doubt there’s a high probability that Dealio partakes in this activity, there is a specific red challenger with black racing stripes over the roof of the vehicle that is most dangerous. As they almost always have tinted windows, it’s hard to see the actual driver. I only “met” Dealio because he power down his driver’s side window to call me a B*****.

      This statement says the other driver was in a Challenger but then they show a photo of the "2nd Suspect Vehicle" which is a 4 door Charger and also called a Charger and not a 2 door Challenger. So which vehicle are they looking for? Do they even know for sure? Did you notice this discrepancy, Mary?

    5. Thanks for the update, Mary. I'm glad that the judge didn't lower his bail to $250k. Did Dealio show any emotion at all or did he just sit there trying to look like a tough guy? Who else was there-any relatives of his or of the victims? If so did they talk to each other at all? Hopefully they'll find the driver of the Charger one of these days. Thanks again....

    6. I wasn't there. I injured my back so there's no way I can sit on those wood benches. I also don't have a car at the moment. Some people did go. I'll try to find out what happens. It was probably a short appearance. The accused is in prison garb in handcuffs in a room with big glass windows. He probably just said "yes," "no," "not guilty" and that was it. His lawyer would have argued to reduce the bail. The attorney is a "boutique" criminal lawyer so he wasn't cheap. This isn't a public defender. I wonder where Dealio is getting the money because his family is broke.

  49. Do you have an update on Anthony Miramonte? Hopefully he isn't still in a coma after 2+ months. Any idea what his prognosis is? Does it look like Alfonso is going to make a full recovery both mentally and physically? I ran their names through Google but couldn't find any updates on them. Are they still looking for the driver of the Charger? Thanks, Mary....

    1. Alfonso is improving. He sounds pretty good to me. He posted this on Facebook. "Alfonso Morillo

      For the neuro doctors to tell my parents that I would never wake up from my coma, or if I did... I would never remember anyone or anything... Just really blows my mind and makes me sad to hear when my parents told me that. 😒

      I thank God that he was by my side."

  50. Thanks for posting. I have enjoyed looking through the rest of your blog. Unfortunately I would need to find an accident attorney in Lake Worth otherwise I would use you guys.

  51. Thanks for posting the update and pic of Scott Treadway's funeral. Judging from all the UPS drivers there I assume it was held on a Saturday or Sunday? When do you think Lockhart's trial will actually start? I can't believe they still haven't found the driver of the Charger. Thanks again....

    1. The trial won't be for a looooong time. They will keep continuing hearings and the preliminary trial. This is a complex case and one defendant is still not known. There is a lot of evidence to go through from Dealio's phone, videos of his car racing to video cameras and the many eye witnesses. As an example of how long it takes four kids killed a Chinese student July 2014. January 2015 was the preliminary hearing. There still has not been a trial and it's been two years since the murder. The kids admitted they beat the person. There is a lot of video. Dealio admits he was racing. Dealio has a good attorney so it could take even longer.

  52. "Tony aka Anthony Miramonte is still in a coma. He's been in a coma five months. So sad."

    He's been in a coma since February? That's obviously terrible news. Is he on life support and being kept alive by machines or is he breathing on his own? Any idea on what his chances are of coming out of it and resuming a normal life? I'm no doctor but I think the odds of that happening are pretty slim. Do you think anything interesting will happen in court tomorrow or will it just be continued? Thanks, Mary...

  53. Mr Littlefield posted that we should pray for Tony to wake up. He needs to wake up. I assume it means he's still in a coma. The parents of Michelle who died have been visiting Tony and other survivor. The calendar says it's for preliminary hearing setting/resetting. I think they will just try to set a date for the preliminary hearing. I don't think it's the preliminary hearing. Interested parties should watch the preliminary hearing. The prosecutor must prove to the judge that there is enough evidence to take the case to trial. I believe there most certainly is.

    1. I believe he's still in a coma. If he were out of the coma, I know his friends and family members would have said something. They haven't found the other driver.

  56. Honestly all of you guys talking shit on Dealio might end up eating your words one day. I pray that doesn't happen but you should never judge someone because of an accident. It was not pre meditated, Dealio is not a psycho, i know him and I've worked with him countless times for countless hours. He is a very nice well mannered man from Detroit who got his big break filming for dancing with the stars a few years ago. One of the things that came along with this new found success was a the ability to buy a new car and just like anyone who buys there first car with there own money, he loved it and took many pics and vids with it. He t was a photographer and videographer by career so its not like he just had this random obsession with driving fast. It was a one time accident, and Dealio suffers from extreme anxiety attacks. I can only imagine how bad it must've been that day with the things he had accidentally caused. All I am saying is don't judge the man over a mistake. If it was your mistake or someone you knew you would want that same forgiveness. Tar and Feather me if you must now haters...Suck It.. Dealio's the Homie4Life..Peace OUT SUCKAAAS

    1. Don't judge the man over a mistake? He killed three people including two teenagers! There were many witnesses and he admitted it to the police so there is absolutely no doubt that he did it while racing another car at over 120 mph! The poor UPS truck driver was running around on fire before he died and both teens were decapitated! There is another young man who was in a coma for several months and may still be in it who will most likely never be able to return to normal again. If Dealio gets out of prison before age 60 he will be extremely lucky. You need to accept the facts as they are and grow the hell up instead of calling us names....

    2. Cry me a fucking river for Dealio. He ignored his warnings in the form of speeding tickets. Don't care about his anxiety either. He was known to brag about his street racing - he's got everything coming to him. Homies going down. He will SUCK it!

  57. Now that it's been almost a year are there any updates? Is Tony still in a coma? Any idea when the trial will actually start or if he's going to accept a plea deal since there's no doubt that he was at fault? Thanks, Mary....

    3. There is no bail. He's still in jail. Nothing happened July 19th. No trial has been set. There are no upcoming hearings scheduled at this time. I can only see the calendar 30 days ahead.
