A man was taken by helicopter from a motor vehicle crash on U.S 20 here in
LaPorte County.
Two others went to hospitals by ambulance.
The crash happened about 11:30 this 300 East.....
Police say an SUV was stopped waiting to make a lefthand turn...when hit in the rear
by another SUV.
The vehicle hit on the back end was shoved into the path of an oncoming semi truck.
Buddy Kasinger with LaPorte County Emergency Medical Service.....described the condition of one
man as ''very critical.''
The names of those involved in the crash so far have not been released.
The accident scene is where many of the bad crashes on U.S 20 have occurred the past several months.
So far....we don't know if the driver at fault was using a cell phone.
Sheriff John Boyd remains drivers.....though.....not to engage in distracted driving.
