An Angier Elementary teacher died after suffering injuries in a single-vehicle wreck on Carson Gregory Road Sunday afternoon. Her three children were transported with injuries to WakeMed Raleigh.
Troopers say 17-year-old Braxton Webb was driving the family’s 2011 Infinity passenger car, traveling north on Carson Gregory Road when he left the roadway to the right and overcorrected. The overcorrection sent the car into a skid and off of the left side of the roadway where it collided with a tree and overturned near the road’s intersection with Maple Road.
All four passengers were rushed to WakeMed for treatment, where Alicia Webb was pronounced dead. Her three children, Braxton, a 12-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son were treated for injuries in the hospital. One of the children remains hospitalized in serious condition.
All four were wearing seat belts and troopers say there was no evidence of impairment. The wreck remains under investigation.
Alicia Webb was a teacher in Harnett County Schools for nearly two decades, teaching several years at Angier Elementary before moving to Lafayette Elementary for 10 years and returning to Angier Elementary last year. She taught fifth grade English as a Second Language.
Alicia Webb lived in Angier. She graduated from Campbell University with a master’s degree in elementary education.
“On behalf of Harnett County Schools and the board of education, we send our thoughts and prayers to Ms. Webb’s family and the children,” said Aaron Fleming, superintendent of Harnett County Schools, at a board meeting Monday morning. “We are very sad when we lose one of our own. Our school district hurts.”
