Three Airlifted After US 6 Crash

Share this post

Three people were airlifted to Illinois hospitals after a crash north of Valparaiso around 9:30 Monday night. Porter County Sheriffs Police say the traffic signal was out due to the storm, and a passenger vehicle going north on Calumet Avenue struck the trailer of a semi going west on US 6. Police found the car pinned under the semi, and the officer had to crawl underneath to determine that there were three occupants in the car, but none could be extricated until a wrecker could lift the trailer off the car so it could be pulled free. Officials say the vehicles came to rest on US 6, about three-hundred feet west of the intersection.  Police say the driver and passengers from the car are from northwest Indiana, but their names are conditions were not available.   Porter County Sheriff David Lain says it appears the storm played a significant role in the incident, but an official cause is still pending.
