One Dead After Crash On 80/94

Saturday morning at approximately 5:30 AM, Indiana State Troopers responded to a crash with injuries on I-80/94 eastbound at the 4.8 mile-marker just west of the Cline Ave. overpass, according to Sgt. Glen Fifield.

Preliminary investigation by Master Trooper Lawrence McFarrin shows that a blue 2019 Kia had been reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed through the construction zone. The Kia collided with a crash attenuator that separates the mainline interstate lanes from the exit ramp to Cline Ave. After the initial impact, the Kia was reported to have gone airborne, and traveled into the lanes of travel.  The Kia went directly into the path of a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado, which struck the Kia on the driver’s side door area.  Life-saving measures were attempted on the driver of the Kia, however the driver succumbed to their injuries at the scene. The driver of the Chevrolet was not injured. The Lake County Coroner’s Office and the Gary Fire Department also assisted at the scene. Identification of the deceased is pending notification to family.
