Luke T. Hoffman

Police Officer Luke Hoffman succumbed to injuries sustained the previous day when he was struck by a patrol car while involved in a foot pursuit of a suspected drunk driver.

The driver had fled on foot after a slow-speed pursuit in the Aspen Hill area at approximately 1:30 am.

The officer was struck after chasing the suspect across Old Georgia Avenue, near Bel Pre Road, in an area with very low lighting conditions. The officer in the patrol car that struck Officer Hoffman was injured when his patrol car went down an embankment and struck a tree. Officer Hoffman was flown to a hospital in Baltimore, where he succumbed to his injuries later that day.

Officer Hoffman had served with the Montgomery County Police Department for only one year and was assigned to the 4th District.
