Sentence In Hit-And-Run That Injured Johns Hopkins University Students

BALTIMORE (CBSDC/AP) — A man has been given a three-year suspended sentence for a hit-and-run collision that injured two Johns Hopkins University students last year near the Homewood campus.

Thomas D. Green must also undergo alcohol treatment as part of a sentence imposed Friday in Baltimore City Circuit Court.

Prosecutors say Green was under the influence of alcohol on May 7 when his car struck two Hopkins students who were crossing the street. Green then drove away.

The students survived and went on to complete their spring semester.

The 37-year-old Green pleaded guilty Friday to causing a life-threatening injury while under the influence of alcohol and to failing to stop his vehicle after the accident.
