Fatal Crash On 80/94 Thursday

This afternoon at approximately 1:25 PM, Indiana State Troopers were dispatched to a multi-vehicle crash on I-80/94 eastbound at the Columbia Ave. overpass between Calumet Avenue and Indianapolis Blvd, according to Sgt. Glen Fifield.

Preliminary investigation shows that a semi was traveling in the 2nd lane from the left and was slowing in traffic. A Kia Sorento SUV that was either slowing or stopped behind that semi, was rear-ended by another semi at a high rate of speed. This initial impact pushed the Kia underneath the trailer of the front semi. A third semi was also rear-ended as a result of the crash.

A passenger in the Kia sustained fatal injuries at the scene. The driver of the Kia and a child that was a passenger in the Kia were transported for treatment of potentially life-threatening injuries. Identification of the deceased is pending.
