JERSEY CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Bail is staying at $250,000 for a bus driver who police said caused a chain reaction crash that killed an 8-month-old girl in a stroller and injured seven others in West New York earlier this week.
Idowu Daramola did not enter a plea during his court appearance Thursday. The 48-year-old is charged with death by auto, reckless driving and using a cellphone while operating a vehicle.
Daramola, who does not qualify for a public defender, will be arraigned when he finds an attorney.
Sporting a green jailhouse jumpsuit and bloodshot eyes, he told the judge, “I don’t have a lawyer. Can’t get a hold of him.”
