(La Porte County, IN) - A fatal accident between a pick-up truck and a semi, pulling a flat-bed trailer, occurred this morning near Rolling Prairie. The collision happened after 7 AM at Indiana 2 and 600 East.
La Porte County Police Chief Deputy Ron Heeg said the semi was northbound on 600 East and pulled out from a stop sign to begin heading west on Indiana 2. Heeg said the pick-up eastbound on Indiana 2 ran into the side of the trailer.
Whether the semi pulled out in front of the pickup or if the pickup driver failed to see the trailer and didn’t brake on time is still under investigation.
“A lot of this is early and unknown in the investigation right now,” Heeg said.
