San Pierre Man Injured in Roadside Hit and Run


A San Pierre man who stopped to help another driver change a tire on Interstate 65 in Lake County last night wound up in a Crown Point Hospital after being sideswiped by a car.

Dennis C. Wagner, 60, sustained non-life threatening injuries in the crash, according to an Indiana State Police news release. It happened around 6:45 p.m. on 65 just south of the ramp to U.S. 231. A witness saw a 1995 purple Dodge Intrepid run off the roadway and hit Wagner and the driver of the disabled car. The witness followed the car to a local motel and called the police.

The driver of the Dodge, 31-year-old Danielle Nicole Stovall of Lowell, was arrested on charges of leaving the scene of an accident with injuries and operating while intoxicated.
