DELMAR, Md.- A 49-year-old Wicomico County man has been convicted in connection with a deadly drunk driving crash that occurred last year in Delmar.

A Wicomico County Circuit Court jury on Wednesday found Timothy Roland Brumbley, of Mardela Springs, guilty of homicide by motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol per se, driving under the influence of alcohol per se, negligent driving and other traffic offenses.

Prosecutors said that on Feb. 19, 2013, Brumbley was driving a Honda Accord when it struck a tow truck on northbound Route 13 at Connelly Mill Road. Brumbley and his two male passengers, including 54-year-old Thomas M. Hitch, of Salisbury, were injured in the crash and taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center. Because of the seriousness of his injuries, Hitch was transported by helicopter to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore where he died on Feb. 24.

Prosecutors said Brumbley's blood alcohol level on the night of the crash was .19, more than twice the legal limit. Prosecutors noted that Brumbley had two previous DUI convictions: in 1993 and in 2000.

Sentencing will occur in 30 days.
