Entry Description

Lake County-A semi-flat bed loaded with lumber took the I-65 north bound to I-80/94 west bound ramp too fast losing his load of lumber on top of a passenger car traveling in the lane next to it.

Preliminary investigation by Trooper Josh Roa revealed that at approximately 2:59 p.m., this Thursday, October 24, 2013, afternoon, a 2004 International semi pulling a flat bed loaded with lumber, driven by James Reynolds, 61 of Salem, Indiana was on the I-65 north bound to I-80/94 west bound ramp in the middle lane when he took the curve too fast. This caused his load of lumber to shift and his semi-flat bed to start to roll-over.

A 2009 Nissan, driven by Katrina Reillo, 31 of East Chicago, was in the right lane next to Reynolds’s semi when she realized the semi was losing its load and beginning to roll-over. Reillo was able to lie across her Nissan’s console toward the passenger side when part of the load of lumber landed on the driver’s side top crushing it.

Reillo was taken to Saint Mary’s Medical Center in Hobart with non-life threatening injuries. She was wearing a seat belt. The semi was owned by Stonebelt Freight Lines out of Bloomington, Indiana.

Reynolds was treated and released at the scene for complaint of pain. He was wearing a seat belt.

Reynolds was cited for Speed Too Fast to Avoid a Collision and an Unsecure Load.

The ramp to I-65 north bound to I-80/94 west bound is closed for investigation of the crash, removal of the injured and car, off-loading and re-loading of the lumber, and up righting of the semi-flat bed.
