$75,000 Bond for Hit and Run Suspect [AUDIO]
34 year-old John Lorengo is in the Missoula County Jail on $75,000 bond after being charged in Justice Court with striking and running over Dale Gummer with his white Chevy Silverado pickup truck on Friday the 13th. Deputy Missoula County Attorney Jason Marks says Lorengo had an order of protection against him by Gummer’s sister. Lorengo had attempted to enter the Sunrise Saloon where Gummer and his sister were having drinks, but bouncers refused him admittance.
Marks says Lorengo then ran down Gummer, driving over the man’s legs. Gummer was transported to St. Patrick Hospital with undetermined injuries to his legs. Lorengo was charged Monday afternoon with felony assault with a weapon, failure to stop at an accident scene, violation of an order of protection, and criminal contempt. Bond was set at $75,000.
