Lieutenant Charles Bricker succumbed to injuries sustained two days earlier when the patrol car he was riding in struck a train at an unguarded crossing.

He and another officer were responding to a robbery at a local gas station when the car struck a coal car in the darkness. He suffered a fractured skull and broken hip in the accident and died two days later.

Lieutenant Bricker had served with the Huntington Police Department for 22 years. He was survived by his wife.
