Galo struck the motorcycle of 25-year-old second year law student, Drew Rosenberg. Galo was trying to run an unchanging light and struck Drew's motorcycle. This was in rush hour traffic so neither party was going fast. Drew was knocked from his motorcycle and landed in front of Galo's vehicle. Had Galo stopped after initial contact, Drew would have only sustained a few bruises. However, eyewitnesses said Galo accelerated and he drove over Drew's body. He would have driven clear over Drew, however his helmet lodged in front of Galo's front tire stopping forward momentum. This caused Galo to back up and drive over Drew again. After backing up, he again accelerated over Drew. Galo was found guilty of manslaughter and driving without a license.
