Driver Stands Trial for Fatal Crash

May 10, 2023

Nearly five years after Army veteran and New Hampshire State Prison guard Patrick Bettens was killed while riding his bicycle in Concord, the woman accused of driving the car that struck him is on trial for his death.

Jessica Warren, 46, of Penacook, pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of causing serious harm while driving after suspension and several misdemeanors.

Prosecutors are seeking the maximum state prison sentence arguing that if Warren had obeyed the law and not operated her vehicle with a suspended license, Bettens would be alive.
