CONCORD — A former Rockwell man was convicted Monday of plowing into a group of bicyclists and fleeing the scene in 2010.

A jury found Daniel Wilson II guilty of five counts of felony hit-and-run in Cabarrus County Superior Court, according to various media outlets. He was also convicted of one count of misdemeanor hit-and-run.

A group of 18 cyclists were traveling single-file down St. Stephen’s Church Road in May 2010 when the incident occurred.

Wilson’s Nissan Pathfinder swerved into the cyclists, before fleeing.

Several of the cyclists were seriously injured. No one was killed.

Some of the cyclists recorded the vehicle’s license plate number. Wilson later turned himself in at the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office.

Wilson, 23, is expected to be sentenced Tuesday at 9:30 a.m.
