Impaired Driver Makes Interstate Travel Worse

(Porter County, IN) - The recent blizzard didn’t deter a Chesterton woman from drunk driving on the interstate.


On Friday evening around 6:00 p.m., Indiana State Police were handling a lane closure on westbound I-94 near the Burns Harbor exit. While a hazmat crew was cleaning up the mess from a previous crash, troopers witnessed another crash in the other lanes between a semi and a 1999 Chevy passenger car, which fled the scene.


The Chevy stuck out like Rudolph’s red nose due to extensive front-end damage, and police gave chase. A trooper located the vehicle about two miles down the interstate crashed into a ditch.


The driver, 32-year-old Tiffany Bergstrom of Chesterton, was charged with O.W.I., Intoxicated Endangerment, and Leaving the Scene of a Crash.
