WICOMICO CO., Md. - A Wicomico County man has been convicted in the homicide by motor vehicle death of a Salisbury man.

On Wednesday, in Wicomico County Circuit Court, 49-year-old Timothy Brumbley was convicted 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.

The charges stem from a February 19th, 2013 incident where Brumbley hit a tow truck then a guard rail on Northbound Route 13, with two male passengers in his car. A Delmar Police Officer talked to Brumbley, who was showing signs of being under the influence of alcohol. There were also several empty beer cans in the car.

All three of the men were taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center after the crash, eventually one of the passengers 54-year-old Thomas Hitch was air lifted to University Hospital Shock Trauma in Baltimore, because of the seriousness of his injuries. He later died there, on February 24th, 2013 from injuries sustained in the crash. Brumbley's blood was drawn at PRMC on the night of the crash, and he had a blood alcohol level of 0.19.

After the jury's verdict, Brumbley's bond was revoked, so he is now in the custody of the Wicomico County Detention Center, pending sentencing. Officials say sentencing should happen in around a month.

Brumbley was convicted of driving while intoxicated in 1993, and driving while under the influence of alcohol in 2000.
