Police searching for driver in deadly hit-and-run in Salisbury

SALISBURY, N.C. — One person is dead after a hit-and-run in Salisbury, according to police.

It happened along the 500 block of Faith Road sometime between 9 p.m. Saturday and 5 a.m. Sunday. The victim has been identified as 59-year-old Victor Gobin.

Police said they are looking for a 2017 white BMW sedan that they believe left the scene after hitting Gobin. The car is missing the right-side door trim that goes over both doors and the passenger-side mirror cover.

Channel 9′s Anthony Kustura talked to Ginger Mcintyre, who was a friend of Gobin’s.

The shock is settling in.

“That can’t be because I just seen him a couple days ago,” Mcintyre said.

McinrtyRe said Gobin was homeless but was working to get his life back on track.

“Just because you’re homeless doesn’t mean you’re alcoholics or drunks, or drug addicts,” Mcintyre said. “They’re humans too; they’re there because they got in trouble, everyone makes mistakes.”

She hopes police soon find the person who hit Gobin.

If you have any information about the hit-and-run, you are asked to call Officer Hunter Shue at 704-640-8166.
