Hit-and-run case postponed

The court case involving a Rowan County man who authorities say drove his SUV into a group of cyclists in Cabarrus County and then fled the scene in May has been continued, a courts official said Tuesday.
Daniel Burton Wilson II, 21, of 325 Sands Road, Rockwell, was due in Cabarrus County District Court on Tuesday on six counts of felony hit and run. Authorities said Wilson swerved into a group of 18 cyclists, hitting six and dragging one underneath his Nissan Pathfinder.
Wilson was driving north on St. Stephens Church Road in Cabarrus County, just south of the Rowan County line between Kluttz and Salisbury roads, the N.C. Highway Patrol reported. The cyclists were traveling south on St. Stephens Church Road.
A motorist who saw the collision followed Wilsonís car and recorded the tag number, the Highway Patrol said. Wilson later turned himself in at the Cabarrus County Sheriffís Office.
An official in the District Court clerkís office did not know Tuesday afternoon when Burton is next scheduled to appear in court.
