[ISP] Two Injured in Crash on I-94

Entry Description

LaPorte County-Master Trooper Dave Miller responded to a single vehicle crash on I-94, this afternoon, which sent two women to the hospital with injuries.

Preliminary investigation revealed that at approximately 2:00 P.M., Sunday, May 12, 2013, a 2004 Buick Rendezvous, driven by Gayle L. Jenkins, 57 of Merrillville, was west bound on I-94 at the 39 mile marker (one mile west of the LaPorte exit) in the middle lane when a black SUV made an abrupt lane change from the right lane to the middle lane causing Jenkins to swerve to the left. Jenkins lost control; the Rendezvous went off the road onto the inner shoulder and hit the concrete median barrier wall with its rear. It then rotated and hit the median barrier wall again with its front end. The Rendezvous went back across all lanes of west bound traffic and came to rest on the outer shoulder facing southwest.

Linda Adamczewski, 61 of Gary (passenger) was taken to Saint Anthony’s Hospital in Michigan City with non-life threatening injuries to her neck, shoulder and leg. Jenkins was also taken to Saint Anthony’s with non-life threatening injuries to her back.

The black SUV continues west bound without stopping.

The Rendezvous sustained approximately $15,000 in damages.

The right lane was closed for approximately one hour for removal of the injured, the Rendezvous, and clean-up.

Trooper Miller stated, “Because they were wearing their seatbelts and airbags were deployed this greatly reduced the severity of the injuries in this crash.”
