Elizabeth City Police Officer Dies

Elizabeth City Police Force is joining the family of an officer in mourning his death Tuesday.

Elizabeth City Police Officer Lonnie Lee Moore Junior was off-duty when he crashed early Sunday morning on Highway 13, south of Windsor in Bertie County. Troopers think Moore may have swerved to avoid a deer, and ended up hitting a utility pole. Investigators don't think Moore was wearing a seat belt.

Another person in the car, 47 year-old Stephanie Gallerson of Tampa, Florida was airlifted to Pitt County Memorial Hospital. She's listed in good condition this morning.

No funeral arrangements for officer Moore have been announced yet. A press conference has been scheduled for Tuesday at 2 PM at the Elizabeth City Police Department.
