BURLINGTON, N.C.–Terrance Daniels and Herbert Moody are two best friends who have been through a lot in the past two months.
In January, police say Daniels was signing to Moody, when someone thought the sign language was a gang signal and stabbed him. Police arrested Robert Jarell Neal and charged him with felony assault on a handicapped person and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.
Last week, Daniels and Moody were walking on South Graham Hopedale Rd. in Burlington around 3 a.m., when police say a driver hit both of them.
After the accident, the driver stopped the car, looked at Daniels and Moody then got back in his vehicle and fled the scene. Both were left severely injured.
Police haven’t been able to talk to Daniels or Moody because of their injuries, but are searching for a white SUV that hit the two men.
Police do not believe the stabbing and the hit-and-run are related.
