Man critical after train hits car

February 14, 2011

A Hickory man is in serious condition Monday after a train hit the car he was a passenger in early Sunday.
A 2010 Dodge Challenger, driven by Cedric Genwright, 26, of Lenoir, was accompanied with three other males. The men were traveling away from Union Square at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday near Second Street Southwest. The car never made it over the railroad tracks on Second Street Southwest.
Hickory Police Sgt. C. Anderson said it is unknown why the car was stopped on the railroad tracks. When the train came, it hit the Challenger on the rear passenger side, which is where Antonio Poston, 37, of Hickory, was sitting.
Poston was taken to Frye Regional Medical Center and transported by EMS to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. He was listed in serious condition Monday.
Genwright and Antonio Glover, 23, of Conover, who was another passenger in the car, escaped before the train hit the car. Anderson said a fourth male was also in the car, but he fled on foot after exiting the vehicle.
No one has been arrested, and no charges are filed at this time. Hickory Police are still investigating.
