High School Star Killed In Drunk Driving Accident

After a tough loss in a playoff game Friday night, teammates at Howard County’s River View High decided to go out partying the following night until 3am Sunday morning. Thomas Erdman climbed into the passenger side of his brother’s pickup while his friend, Steven Dankos climbed in to the truck bed.

The truck swerved off the road and slammed into stone pillars on a nearby road, killing Dankos immediately. The Erdman brothers had mild injuries and were treated at the hospital but not before David Erdman was arrested drunken driving, homicide by motor vehicle while intoxicated and manslaughter by motor vehicle, police said. He was taken to jail, and bond was set at $10,000.
