Truck driver charged with having no license after fatal scooter accident

SALISBURY – Riding a scooter without lights, two young men died Thursday after a car pulled into their path on Jake Alexander Boulevard in the dark, early morning hours.
The two teens were riding southeast in the outside lane on Jake Alexander Boulevard about 4:45 a.m. when a Jeep Cherokee pulled out from Dan Street to go north on Jake Alexander. The SUV hit the mo-ped, knocking it into the path of a northbound box truck.
The mo-ped driver, James Dillon Logan, 18, of 701 Klumac Road, died at the scene. The rider, Dillon R. Robertson, 19, of the same address, was flown to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, where he later died.
The SUV was driven by Patricia Jones of Dan Street.
The truck driver, Enedino Caroso, 33, of Branch View Drive in Charlotte, was cited for not having a driver’s license. Investigators are meeting with the district attorney to discuss whether other charges are warranted.
Salisbury Police spent hours detouring traffic away from the wreckage, which was near the entrance to Clancy Hills Apartments and the Salisbury Mall.
Attempts to reach family members for comment were unsuccessful.
Salisbury Police had cited Logan at 12:27 a.m. Wednesday, just the day before the crash. Among the charges was failing to burn his headlamp.
