DURHAM, N.C. -- Two North Carolina men were killed when their car was hit from behind by another car that left the scene of the accident.
Highway Patrol Sgt. Jeff D. Gordon told the News & Observer of Raleigh that 24-year-old Timothy Parrish Jr. and 37-year-old Keith Mitchell Durham died early Saturday.
Gordon said witnesses reported seeing the two cars involved in the crash racing on U.S. 70 near Durham.
State troopers are looking for a blue or green Chevrolet TrailBlazer that likely has front-end damage. Investigators say the TrailBlazer hit the Ford Taurus the two men were riding in, sending it off the right shoulder of the road and into woods.
