TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey high school student who prosecutors say was talking on her cellphone while driving has pleaded guilty to hitting and killing her school superintendent while he was jogging.
The student pleaded guilty Monday to leaving the scene of a fatal crash and careless driving.
Prosecutors say the 18-year-old will face three years of probation, lose her license for two years and must serve 200 hours of community service when she’s sentenced under terms of a plea agreement in January.
Authorities said she was late for a class trip when she hit Robbinsville Superintendent Steven Mayer in April, killing him and his dog. Mayer was the married father of three sons.
