KERNERSVILLE, N.C. — A pickup carrying four men collided with a train at the entrance to a recycling center on West Mountain Street.

Kernersville police tell the Winston-Salem Journal the pickup did not stop for a stop sign and was hit by the train at the entrance to Omni Source recycling center at 1426 W. Mountain St.

The engineer had activated the emergency horn and lights on the engine, police said, but the pickup driver told investigators through a translator that he did not see the train.
