WATERLOO (KWWL) -

An Iowa woman accused of hitting a motorcyclist last October pleaded guilty Monday.

Jennifer Lynn Moeller, 22, of Holland, was charged with serious injury by vehicle and leaving the scene of an injury accident.

Moeller is accused of hitting Joan Nicholson of Waterloo. Police say Moeller was texting and driving when her vehicle crossed the yellow line and hit Nicholson's motorcycle, but those charges are still pending.

Nicholson lost her leg in the crash.

Moeller faces up to five years in prison. She will be sentenced at a later date.
