DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. -- It's been nearly two years and police still haven't made any arrests in a deadly hit and run accident that killed two cousins.

Ashley Johnson was 26 years old. Dwight Scales was 25 years old. The family says the two were in the process of moving in with one another. Johnson and Scales were driving back to Winston-Salem when they stopped on the side of U.S. 52 in Davidson County. Their family believes the two were in danger and that's why they ran across the highway. A car hit Johnson and Scales and kept driving.

Two other vehicles hit the cousins while they were in road. Those two vehicles did stop. Johnson and Scales were dead.

"I miss her so much. The whole family misses her so much," said Blondella Johnson, Ashley's grandma.

Police are still looking for whoever was driving that first car. "If you know anything, any small thing, it doesn't matter, come forward to the authorities," explains Larry Johnson, Dwight's cousin.

If you know anything that could help call the NC State Highway Patrol or the Lexington Police Department at 336-243-3302.
