[ISP] Roll-Over Closes Entrance to Toll Road

Entry Description

Porter County-A roll-over semi closed the entrance to the Toll Road this afternoon after he made a turn too fast causing his load to shift.

Preliminary investigation by Trooper Kenneth Watkins revealed that, at approximately 3:15 p.m., a 2000 Mack semi pulling a tanker, driven by Dale L. Kyle, 52 of Gary, was north bound on State Road 49 in the far right lane when he made a left turn to enter onto the Indiana Toll Road entrance ramp too fast.  This caused the 70,000 pounds of liquid truck wash to shift causing the semi and tanker to roll over onto its side. 

The semi owned by Beaver Oil Company out of Hodgkins, Illinois sustained substantial damage.  Kyle was not injured.  He was cited for Unsafe Lane Movement.  There was no load loss at the scene.

The entrance ramp is closed until the contents of the tanker can be off-loaded onto another tanker; then the semi and tanker will be up-righted and towed from the scene.  The ramp is expected to be closed for another thirty minutes.  (The exit ramp from the Toll Road to State Road 49 is NOT closed). 

Assisting:  Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division Trooper Tom Devries, Chesterton Police and Fire Department and Joe’s Towing.

All criminal defendants are to be presumed innocent until, and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
