One Person Airlifted from Crash

(La Porte County, IN) - La Porte County Police are still investigating a serious motor vehicle crash that occurred around noon last Friday at U.S 421 and 1500 South.  Police said a westbound flat-bed pick-up truck, apparently hauling dirt, collided with a southbound passenger vehicle.


40-year-old Eric Duttlinger of Wanatah told police he stopped for a stop sign, looked both ways, and saw a vehicle off in the distance before pulling out.  His pick-up struck the driver’s side of the passenger vehicle driven by 63-year-old Sandra Holloway.


The Central Indiana woman told police Duttlinger ran the stop sign. She was taken to the hospital in Porter County.  Her passenger, 72-year-old Virgil Holloway also from Central Indiana, was airlifted to a hospital wearing a neckbrace and complaining of pain in his back. Duttlinger was not injured.


So far, police said it appears alcohol was not involved in the accident.
