One man was killed, another man survived a motor vehicle crash early Thursday

outside La Porte.

About 2:30 a.m., authorities said a car left a curvy stretch of U-S 35 near

Schultz Rd. and traveling a few hundred feet before crashing into a large grove

of trees.

La Porte County Coroner John Sullivan says he believes speed was a factor but

whether alcohol had anything to do with the crash was pending test results.

26 year old Jacob Anderson of La Porte was killed while the driver, 29 year old Thomas Drnek

also of La Porte was taken to the hospital.

His injuries were not believed life threatening.

Sullivan said what the men were doing and where they had been prior to the crash was not known.
