Sentence In Hit-And-Run That Injured JHU Students

BALTIMORE (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.

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.

Green, 37, 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.
