PORTER COUNTY — Police say a Chesterton man was seriously injured Tuesday on I-94 when he lost control of his car and slid under the trailer of a semi.
The crash happened just before 11:30 at the 26.1 mile marker, just west of the State Road 49 exit. Police say George Knight, 58, of Chesterton, Indiana came off the State Road 49 southbound to I-94 westbound ramp too fast and lost control on the ice.
Knight’s vehicle spun into the middle lane where it slid under the trailer of a semi driven by 33-year-old Jason Babcock of White Cloud, Michigan. It slid back out and came to rest about 100 feet away.
Knight had to be extricated by the Chesterton Fire Department. He was transported to Porter Hospital with possible internal injuries and broken bones.
