Share this post

Indiana State Police at the Lowell Post say a driver lost his life in a crash on Interstate 94 near Chesterton after being ejected from his vehicle. Troopers say it appears the car was eastbound at a high rate of speed around 9:30 last night when for unknown reasons struck the rear of a semi, flipped and rolled multiple times, going over the concrete barrier wall and coming to rest on the westbound side. Police say 62-year-old Dr. Sridhar Mothkur of Chesterton, reportedly a radiologist in Michigan City, was pronounced dead at the scene of blunt force trauma. The semi driver was not hurt. Traffic was being diverted at State Road 49 until lanes were re-opened just before 2 am.  The semi was loaded with 6,980 pounds of miscellaneous auto parts, no load was lost.
