ELKTON, Md. (AP) — A police officer in Elkton has pleaded guilty to driving while impaired by alcohol and a hit-and-run offense after an off-duty crash.

Pfc. David Walter Vogel II, 41, entered the plea Wednesday. Sentencing is set for March 5.

Police say Vogel was off duty driving his personal SUV on Nov. 3 when he crossed the center line on South Bridge Street, hit a truck and drove away. There were no injuries.

The Cecil Whig reports that Vogel, an 11-year veteran with the force, has been suspended with pay since the incident.
