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.
