A Hebron motorist
was seriously injured on Monday in a collision with a semi-tractor trailer
on U.S. Highway 30 in Washington Township, the Porter County Sheriff’s
police, at 2:30 p.m. James Sperry, 73, of Hebron, was westbound on U.S. 30
when, about a quarter mile east of C.R. 575E, he crossed the center line and
struck the semi, traveling eastbound in the left lane, head-on.
subsequently advised police that Sperry, driving a 2014 Ford F-150, had been
“weaving in and out of westbound traffic” and had already crossed the center
line once previously before the accident.
airlifted to a South Bend hospital with “incapacitating injuries,” police
identified as Fred Hundt, 66, of Knox, Ind., was uninjured, police said.
Prior to the crash, Hundt had been traveling in the right lane when another
semi switched lanes in front of him and began to slow, prompting Hundt to
move into the left lane to avoid a rear-end collision, police said.
“No citations were
issued at the scene and standard toxicology results are pending,” police
