Haverhill teen in crash didn’t text, lawyer says

HAVERHILL — Testifying ­before a packed courtroom Tuesday, Aaron Deveau fidgeted and gave clipped answers as he told a jury that he was not sending a text message in the moments leading up to the fatal head-on collision that killed Donald ­Bowley Jr. and seriously injured Bowley’s girlfriend, Luz Roman.

Deveau, 18, is the first in the state to be tried on texting-while-driving charges.
