There is no rule against a single checker hitting two blots in one turn. At backgammonrules.net (emphasis mine):

Hitting blots

If a player moves to a point occupied by only one of his opponent's checkers, the checker is hit. Hit checkers are forced to re-enter. This slows their owner down. The opponent proceeds - and a player ahead in the race home is more likely to win.

  • Keep an eye on points occupied by a single checker, since these checkers are blots and can be hit.
  • Hit when you can, but weigh the risk of thereby leaving a blot yourself.
  • Opt for a two-stage move to throw out two blots at once or hit one and move on to a safe place.
  • Place the hit blots on the bar.
