A semi-trailer owned by a Plymouth company was involved in an accident along I-94 at the Porter exit.
According to a release from the Indiana State Police, a 2006 Chevrolet pickup drive by 34-year-old Nicholas Heflin moved from the right to the center lane in front of the semi, owned by Gundlach and Sons out of Plymouth.
Heflin’s pickup struck the semi and spun in front of it. This caused the vehicle to be pushed along the roadway until it struck a snow embankment on the inside shoulder. Hitting the snow only made things worse according to the report as the pickup flipped multiple times and came to a stop in east bound traffic after crossing the median.
The semi did not lose any of its payload, but state police say about $20-thousand in damages were caused to both vehicles.
The driver of the pickup was taken to Porter Regional Hospital in Valparaiso for treatment. The driver of the semi was uninjured in the crash.
Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
