HENDERSON, NC (AP) -- Vance County officials have charged six men with assault in the beating of a driver who had struck a pedestrian. Officials say 42-year-old Eric Loznicka was attacked Saturday after he struck 18-year-old Rueben Wright near an outdoor theater in Henderson. Loznicka remains hospitalized. Sheriff's officials said Carlton Ragland and James Ragland turned themselves in to deputies after the incident. Less Ragland, Lonnie Hargrove, Damien Trowbridge, and Avone Fouch were arrested Wednesday. The six are charged with assault inflicting serious injury. A hearing is set April 18 in District Court. It wasn't clear if they have lawyers. Vance County sheriff's officials said more arrests are possible. Deputies say Loznicka was pulled from his truck and kicked and struck by several people. Witnesses said Wright had been standing in the road. (Copyright 2011 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
