OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) -- Ocean City Police have charged a man with driving under the influence of alcohol after they say he hit a bus and left the scene of the accident.

It happened about 2:45 a.m. Sunday near 7th Street and Philadelphia Avenue. Officers say a municipal bus was traveling on Philadelphia Avenue when a car failed to stop at a stop sign on 7th Avenue and hit the bus.

A Worcester County sheriff's deputy who was patrolling in town found the car a short time later.

Twenty-year-old Maxwell Mosscrop of Stevensville has been charged with 17 offenses. He was released on $10,000 unsecured bond.
