Entry Description

Portage – This morning at approximately 4:20 a.m. (CST), officers from the Indiana State Police responded to a single vehicle crash on Jensen Road underneath Interstate 80/94, in which two people died.

The preliminary crash investigation by Senior Trooper Lawrence McFarrin revealed that Isaac Acheampong, 62, Ontario, Canada was driving a 2014 Toyota Matrix westbound on Interstate 80/94 near the 19 mile marker. For an unknown reason, the Toyota traveled off the north side of the interstate, continued to track westbound parallel to the highway, and hit an earth embankment. After hitting the embankment, the Toyota went airborne across Jensen Road. The Toyota landed on the west side of Jensen Road after an approximately 30 foot drop off of the interstate. Jensen Rd. travels north and south under Interstate 80/94.

Isaac Acheampong and his passenger, Cecelia Acheampong, 53, Ontario, Canada, were pronounced dead at the crash scene by Porter County Deputy Coroner Bob Byrd.

This crash is still under investigation, but at this time neither the use of alcohol nor narcotics is suspected as having contributed to this crash.

Senior Trooper McFarrin was assisted at the crash scene by Trooper John Holmen, the Portage Police Department, the Portage Fire Department, and Porter County EMS.
