Entry Description

LaPorte County – Saturday night, at approximately 7:31 p.m., officers from the Indiana State Police responded to a two vehicle crash on I-94 near the 35 mile marker, in which a Gary, IN, man was severely injured.

The preliminary crash investigation by Trooper Nick Daly revealed that Cecil Roach, 43, Gary, IN, was driving a Honda BR6 motorcycle westbound on I-94 near the 35 mile marker. Evidence indicates that the motorcycle was traveling at a high rate of speed when it rear ended a westbound 2007 Chevrolet Suburban. The Suburban was driven by Douglas Williams, 44, Plainfield, IL. The crash impact caused Roach to be ejected from the motorcycle. He struck the rear of the Suburban before landing on the road.

A helicopter airlifted Roach from the crash scene to Memorial Hospital in South Bend, IN. Roach, who was not wearing a helmet, suffered a head and facial injuries in the crash. Williams was not injured.

This crash is still under investigation.
