ROBBINSVILLE, NJ (WTXF/AP) - A New Jersey high school student who prosecutors say was talking on her cell phone while driving has admitted hitting and killing her school superintendent while he was jogging.
The student pleaded guilty on Monday to leaving the scene of a fatal crash and careless driving.
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.
The 18-year-old, who was a minor at the time of the incident 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.
Prosecutors did not release her name because she was 17 when it happened.
