Concord woman admits to texting while driving during fatal crash that killed teacher

ALLENSTOWN — A Concord woman involved in the 2014 Allenstown crash involving the death of a motorcyclist and popular teacher has pleaded guilty.

Jordan Heath, 25, admitted to texting while driving at the time of the crash that killed 66-year-old Michael Phelps in court Tuesday.

At first, Heath said her brakes had failed, but state police found nothing wrong with the car.

Heath’s first trial in May ended with a hung jury, which led to the plea deal. Heath was sentenced to 12 months suspended, two years probation and a five year loss of license. Heath also will have to make a video about distracted driving as part of her community service.

Phelps was a prostate cancer survivor and a popular teacher at Rundlett Middle School in Concord.
