Troopers say black ice caused fatal I-85 car accident

A Highway Patrol trooper said Sunday morning black ice on I-85 caused an accident that killed a Gastonia man.

Channel 9’s partners at the Gaston Gazette reported that Berhane Gebretsadik, 33, drove over a patch of black ice when he was coming home from work at 2:29 a.m.

Trooper F.J. Beam said that the ice caused Gebretsadik’s car to drive off the right side of the road near mile marker 25.

Beam said Gebretsadik’s 2008 Lincoln hit a tree and then caught fire.

"The roads weren't wet except in that one spot," Beam said. "One witness said he stopped to try and help him get out of the car after the wreck and that he saw another car spin."

Beam said the Department of Transportation put out salt and sand on the spot after the accident.

The black ice spanned about 200 yards, Beam said.

The Gazette reported that Gebretsadik was a hired driver and that alcohol was not a factor.

Beam said that Gebretsadik was most likely driving the speed limit and that the black ice was the reason his car skidded.

'Po Pimp' homework assignment angers parents

Parents in Newton County, Georgia, told Atlanta's WSB-TV that they were upset when their fourth-grader came home with a worksheet that included the phrase "Po Pimp."

"Po Pimp" is the name of a 1996 Do or Die song that features rapper Twista and R&B singer Johnny P.

Scott Tolleson went to the Newton County School Board this week after his fourth-grade son posed an unusual question.

"What is 'Po Pimp'? Try to explain to a fourth-grader what 'Po Pimp' is," Tolleson said.

He said his son came home with a language arts assignment about sentence structure; the worksheet includes a passage about the rapper Twista and how he broke out thanks to the song.

Tolleson said he looked up the lyrics to the song.

"It was very upsetting to my family when we saw this. My wife was left in tears at the kitchen table," Tolleson said.

WSB-TV's Carl Willis spoke to area parents, including Christy Peeples.

"I can kind of see where it would upset a lot of parents, actually," Peeples said.

"It's just something you just have to explain to him, you know,” said another parent, Calvin Grier.

In a statement, Newton County Schools Superintendent Samantha Fuhrey said, "We take great care to review documents selected by our curriculum teams. Unfortunately, we missed this item.”
