A Winterville roofer was charged Wednesday in connection with the death of a Greenville teacher and mother of two after his trailer disconnected and collided with the woman's car on N.C. 43 South on Tuesday, a State Highway Patrol trooper said.
Lisa Langemann, 27, of 2005 Wallace Lane died at the collision scene and her 8-year-old and 1-month-old daughters were injured but survived the wreck, investigating trooper J.E. Lee said. Langemann was in her third year as the second-grade teacher at Bethel Elementary School and had about 30 children in her class this year, Pitt County Schools spokeswoman Heather Mayo said.
John David Ross, 29, of 2909 Royce Lane near Winterville was charged with misdemeanor unintentional death by motor vehicle. The investigation revealed that the homemade trailer did not have safety chains or cables attached as backup restraints, as required under N.C. Statute 20.123, Lee said.
