Entry Description

Porter County-A three vehicle crash, this Sunday, October 13, 2013, afternoon sent a motorcyclist to the hospital.

Preliminary investigation by Trooper Rogelio Escutia revealed that at approximately 3:16 P.M., this afternoon, a 2013 GMC Yukon, driven by Timothy S. Pendell, 53 of Linden, Michigan was west bound on I-94 in the center lane at the 23.8 mile marker (this is approximately 2 miles east of the Porter/Burns Harbor exit). This area is a well marked construction zone where the left lane is closed due to construction. Pendell had to slow down/stop his Yukon because of traffic slowing down/stopping up ahead (there was a three vehicle property damage crash that had occurred just west of this location in the construction zone).

A 2006 Buick, driven by Evelyn A. Bailye, 76 of Chicago Ridge, Illinois, was in the center lane behind the Yukon when Bailye saw the Yukon stop suddenly. Bailye tried but couldn’t stop in time and her Buick hit the rear of the Yukon.

A 2006 Yamaha motorcycle, driven by Louis Brown Junior, 56 of Gary, was in the center lane behind the Buick when he saw the Buick slowing down/stopping suddenly. Brown tried to stop his motorcycle but couldn’t and hit the rear of the Buick. Brown was ejected off his motorcycle and landed on the interstate.

Pendell and Bailye were wearing their seat belts and were not injured. Brown was wearing a motorcycle helmet and was taken to Porter Regional Hospital in Valparaiso with non-life threatening injuries to his back.

All lanes of west bound traffic were closed for approximately one hour for investigation of both crashes, removal of vehicles and the injured, and clean-up.
