Driver Charged in Highway Death of Two La Porte Men

(Plymouth, IN) - A Marshall County grand jury has indicted a truck driver for causing the death of two young men from La Porte.


On August 24 of last year, 19-year-old Patric McGlynn and 21-year-old John Paul Eckel were traveling east on U.S. 30 on their way to work.


Near Plymouth, a semi slammed their car into the back of a tanker truck carrying hazardous liquid. The car and the tanker caught fire, and the two men died in the vehicle.


The driver of the semi, 29-year-old Inderjit Singh Sidhu of Stockton, California, has been charged with two traffic violations, as well as two counts of reckless homicide. An initial hearing is set for October 4 in Marshall County Superior Court 1.


McGlynn and Eckel hailed from Connecticut, but were living in La Porte pursuing careers.
