Traffic was flowing on the Borman Expressway in Northwest Indiana at about 7 a.m. Monday after an earlier crash involving a tractor-trailer and three other vehicles.
The westbound crash on Interstate 80/94 near Indianapolis Boulevard closed several lanes of traffic. Just one lane was open at 6 a.m.
Indiana State Police Trooper Erk Kocinski said a Chicago man, 34-year-old Kirby Lino, spun out of control while attempting to change lanes in his 1999 Nissan Pathfinder. Lino collided with a tractor-trailer driven by 28-year-old Daniel Shay, of Fowlerville, Michigan.
The impact caused Lino to spin out of control a second time and into the path of a 2008 Nissan Altima driven by Davida Champion, 44, of Hobart. Robert Mills, 71, of Griffith, Indiana, was behind Champion's Altima and was unable to stop before he collided with Champion.
Champion was transported to Munster Community Hospital for non-life threatening injuries, Kocinski said.
Lino was cited for Unsafe Lane Movement and Expired License Plates.
