FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. — Two people were injured in an early morning hit and run Tuesday.

The tractor-trailer is described as a white, 2004 Penske tractor-trailer with the tag P301278. It will possibly have damage to the passenger side. The rig was last seen on Highway 158 heading toward Walkertown.
