HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - A western Maryland woman has had a court hearing postponed on charges she was texting behind the wheel when her car struck and killed a bicyclist in January.

Twenty-four-year-old Nadine Rager (RAG’-er) of Hagerstown was charged in March, about six weeks after the hit-and-run collision that killed 47-year-old John Bushman. A hearing scheduled for Tuesday in Hagerstown has been reset for Aug. 24.

Rager is charged with manslaughter, leaving the scene of an accident and unlawful text messaging.

Bushman was a forklift operator. He was killed Jan. 29 while riding his bicycle along West Washington Street, also known as state Route 144, just west of Hagerstown.
