SALISBURY -- Authorities in Rowan County are looking for a Salisbury man in connection with a two-vehicle wreck Sunday evening that left two people dead.
The N.C. Highway Patrol says it is looking for Khalil Abdul Farook. Troopers say he is suspected of driving a car that slammed into a motorcycle, killing the driver and a passenger. The driver of the car fled the scene after the collision, according to the Highway Patrol.
The victims were identified Monday afternoon as Tommy Marshall Jones Sr., 47, and Suzette Burleen Jones, 48, both of Granite Quarry.
The collision happened about 7 p.m. on Airport Road, near the Cedar Circle intersection, troopers say.
According to the Highway Patrol, the driver of a car lost control of his vehicle, went off the right side of the road, and then slid back onto Airport Road sideways. The car slammed broadside into an oncoming motorcycle, killing a man and woman who were riding on the vehicle.
