Man who drove mail truck wrong way on I-79 near Waynesburg to stand trial
The Sewickley man accused of taking a U.S. Postal Service truck from Allegheny County and driving it the wrong way for a couple of miles on Interstate 79 near Waynesburg earlier this year waived his case to court.
Tyler Aiello Floro appeared Friday before District Judge Glenn Bates for his preliminary hearing on multiple charges that included fleeing police, resisting arrest, driving under the influence and reckless endangerment in connection with the Jan. 22 incident with the mail truck.
Floro, 35, allegedly drove the truck from Moon Township south toward Greene County when state police located the vehicle and began pursuing him, according to court documents. At some point, Floro began driving the wrong way in the northbound lanes of the interstate near the Waynesburg interchange while dodging traffic for about two miles, police said.
