Teacher killed; dump trucks involved in three nearby fatalities over the past three years

Staff report
A teacher at Southeast Middle School was killed in an accident on her way to work Friday morning.
Marilyn Webb, who taught science and social studies, died in the car crash about 6:30 a.m. on U.S. 52 near Old Beatty Ford Road in the southeastern part of Rowan County.
This was the third fatality involving a dump truck over the last three years within a mile of the wreck scene.
Rita Foil, a spokeswoman for the Rowan-Salisbury School System, was at Southeast later Friday morning. “This is a very, very sad place right now,” she said.
She said members of a crisis team made up of counselors from schools throughout the county were at Southeast working with teachers and students.
“They’re getting lots of support,” Foil said.
She said Webb had been employed by the school system for about 20 years.
“I heard one of the other teachers say she was the absolute nicest teacher here,” Foil said. “That’s the kind of person she was.”
She said a telephone message regarding Webb’s death was sent via the school system’s Connect-ed system. That message was sent to all parents who have students at the school, as well as all educators with ties to the school.
Foil said Skip Kraft, the school’s principal, spoke to individual grade levels to tell them of Webb’s death. “We’re trying to continue with as normal a school day as possible,” Foil said.
