Guilty plea in crash that killed teenage Howard football player

A former college football player has pleaded guilty in the drunken-driving death of a high school football player from Howard County.

David Erdman, 22, pleaded guilty Monday to negligent homicide while driving under the influence of alcohol.

Erdman was driving his younger brother, Thomas, and friend Steven Dankos home from a party Nov. 30 when he lost control of his pickup truck in Glenelg. The truck overturned, and Dankos, 17, who had been riding in the bed, was killed.

Erdman's attorney, Jeff Harding, said Erdman didn't know Dankos was in the bed of the truck.

Dankos played football at River Hill High School in Clarksville. Erdman played offensive line at River Hill and at Division III Wesley College in Delaware.
