Another Bad Crash on U.S. 20

(Rolling Prairie, IN) - Another bad motor vehicle crash happened on a dangerous stretch of U.S. 20 near Rolling Prairie in La Porte County. 


Police say 64-year-old Vada Pulver of Kingsbury was turning left onto 350 East on Sunday afternoon but failed to see the oncoming vehicle. As a result, her SUV was hit on the passenger side by a car driven by 26-year-old Elisha Gaines of Chicago. Gaines swerved to try and avoid the vehicle but could not.


Both drivers, and a passenger in Gaines' vehicle, complained of pain over their entire bodies. However, no light was shed on the full extent of their injuries. 


Last week, a 24-year-old motorcyclist from Idaho was killed when he drove into the rear of a car waiting to make a left-hand turn on U.S. 20 in front of the Family Express in Rolling Prairie.


That stretch of a four-lane highway is slated to have turning lanes and other improvements added in a project scheduled to begin next spring.
