Pickup driver indicted in fatal November crash

January 22, 2010

The driver of a pickup truck that flipped last year, killing a River Hill high school football player, was indicted Thursday by a Howard County grand jury. David Daniel Erdmann, 22, of the 4300 block of Heritage Hills Lane in Ellicott City, was charged in a multicount indictment. Among the charges were driving under the influence of alcohol, vehicular homicide and manslaughter. Steven Dankos, 17, of Clarksville was riding in the truck bed and died at the scene. Erdmann's brother Thomas, one of Dankos' close friends and a teammate on the River Hill football team, was hurt in the crash. The accident took place Nov. 29, little more than a day after River Hill lost in the state semifinals.
