Two teenagers riding on a motor scooter were killed in a three-vehicle crash Thursday morning in Salisbury, police said.
Around 4:45 a.m., the victims were traveling south on Jake Alexander Boulevard, near Dan Street. The driver of a Jeep Cherokee pulled onto the road and collided with the scooter, according to Salisbury police. Then, the scooter slid into the path of a box truck.
Police said the scooter did not have lights on.
The scooter’s driver, 18-year-old James Dillon Logan of Salisbury, died at the scene, police said. The man riding with him was identified as Dillon R. Robertson, 19, also of Salisbury. Robertson died later at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem.
It’s unclear whether anyone will face charges in connection with their deaths. But the truck driver, Enedino Caroso, 33, of Charlotte, was cited for not having an operator’s license, police said.
The investigation is ongoing. Police said that officers will meet with the District Attorney to determine whether any charges will be filed.
Police closed Jake Alexander Boulevard between Dan Street and Industrial Boulevard, for several hours Thursday. The road was reopened about three hours after the crash.
