I-94 Crash Kills Stevensville Michigan Man

Published: February 4th, 2011

Indiana State Police Troopers investigated a three vehicle crash on I-94 just east of the State Road 249 Portage exit that killed a Michigan man.

Daniel VanDyke's vehicle was a total loss. The accident killed his passenger, Richard A. Hannah, of Stevensville, Michigan

Preliminary investigation revealed that a Valparaiso man, 37-year-old Greg L. Hills, was westbound in the right lane when he lost control of his vehicle. It came to rest facing south in the right lane. A vehicle driven by Daniel VanDyke, 44, of Benton Harbor, Michigan, was slowing to avoid Hills’ vehicle in the lane when VanDyke was rear-ended by a semi-box trailer. After the collision, VanDyke’s vehicle pushed into the driver’s side of Hills’ vehicle. The semi began to jack-knife, hit the median barrier wall, bounced back and the trailer hit the rear of Hills’ vehicle.

Hills had a head injury and a shattered sternum while Vandyke had internal injuries. Vandyke’s passenger, Richard A. Hannah, 47, of Stevensville, Michigan had massive internal injuries and was later pronounced dead at a Gary hospital.

    This like every other death, leaves us with a deep sadness and asking why? The why’s and how’s aren’t really for us to know or decide. We all of us have been given a ultimate blessing with being alive! And even though the Loss of Dan and Richard will make me and their loved ones wake up a little slower, or stay up a little longer, we will do this because it is our God given right and Honor to do so!! But also because we know that our dearly loved departed ones want us to stay alive and go on. They will be waiting for us, when our Natural times comes!
    To Robin Dan’s wonderful Wife, please this is the time to grieve so do so but try to remember that we your Family and Friends love you!!!!
