A Valparaiso man was killed Tuesday in a head-on collision on Ind. 149 in Portage Township, the Porter County Sheriff’s Police said.

The victim was identified as Glenn Jennings, 68.

According to police, at 5 p.m. Jennings was southbound on Ind. 149 in a 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche when, in the area of C.R. 900N, he crossed the center line and struck a semi-tractor trailer.

Jennings was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the semi, whom police did not identify, escaped injury, police said.

The PCSP’s Reconstruction Team is investigating the crash, while the Indiana State Police is assisting with an inspection of the tractor-trailer, police said.

The results of a routine toxicology screen are pending, although police said that neither alcohol nor drugs were thought to have been a factor in the accident.
