A Pitt county man lost his wife and the mother of his two children after a traffic accident that he says could have been prevented.
Now he's lobbying for tougher laws to keep this kind of incident from happening again.
Jamie Langemann is speaking out about the death of his wife, Lisa.
On October 12, Lisa and her two young children were traveling on NC 43 South when a trailer unhitched from a truck and hit her vehicle head on.
The 27-year-old died, but her two kids survived. John Ross of Winterville is charged with Death By Motor Vehicle for the crash.
Troopers say there were no chains or cables to keep the trailer attached.
Now Jamie Langemann says more needs to be done to keep this kind of accident from happening to someone else's family.
Langemann hopes another life will be saved by fighting for tougher laws.
