Man pleads guilty in crash that killed UMD student

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WUSA9) -- A man who was behind the wheel of a car that struck and killed a University of Maryland student in January has pleaded guilty to failure to remain at the scene of a collision involving death.

Liam Adepo pleaded guilty in Prince George's County court to the charge stemming from the hit-and-run crash in College Park that killed student Cory Hubbard.

The collision occurred on January 17th. Authorities say Adepo was seen on video entering Looney's Pub in College Park, and left almost an hour-and-a-half later. Video showed him having difficulty walking. Moments later, a dark colored Toyota sedan is seen leaving the parking lot. Then, at approximately 1:30 a.m., Cory Hubbard was crossing Baltimore Avenue when he was struck by a dark colored Toyota. The vehicle did not stop.

The next day, Adepo told his roommate and a family member what happened and the family member contacted police. Adepo admitted to driving the car.

Adepo faces up to two years in prison. He will be sentenced January 30, 2015.
