A Chesterton man crashed his vehicle on Saturday on I-80/94 in Lake County and died, after suffering an apparent medical emergency, the Indiana State Police said.

The victim was identified as Timothy Knight, 54.

According to police, at 1:45 a.m. Knight was eastbound on I-80/94, just west of Calumet Ave., when he veered right and crossed all lanes of traffic. Knight’s 1998 Toyota Camry struck the outer barrier concrete wall and came to rest in the deceleration lane leading to the Calumet Ave. exit ramps.

Knight was unconscious and not breathing after the crash, police said. He was pronounced dead at Munster Community Hospital and is believed to have had some type of medical emergency prior to the accident, police said.

An autopsy was scheduled.
