An Oakton, Va., man pleaded guilty yesterday in court to driving under the influence during the events that led to the death of a 20-year-old Hagerstown student on the West Virginia University campus in Morgantown on February 27.

The 20-year-old student died from head trauma after jumping onto the bumper of the defendant’s car and then falling off. The 21-year-old defendant was sentenced to serve 24 hours of a 30-day jail sentence and placed on unsupervised probation for one year.

The next day would have been the student’s 21st birthday. He was studying industrial engineering at WVU.
