Three Car Accident Closes U.S. 30


U.S. 30 was closed this morning after a bad accident at the intersection with State Road 39.

The LaPorte County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that three cars were involved in the crash that injured three people. According to Capt. John Boyd, two cars were stopped at a stop light headed westbound on U.S. 30 at the intersection with State Road 39. A third driver, driving highway speed, apparently didn’t see the two cars stopped there and rear-ended the second car in line which hit the first car in line.

The third driver was trapped and had to be extricated from her vehicle. She was subsequently airlifted to South Bend Memorial hospital and the nature of her injuries is unknown. The other two drivers were not seriously injured.

No names have been released by the LaPorte County Sheriff’s Department and the accident remains under investigation.
