An Ohio was killed Friday afternoon in a crash involving three vehicles on the Indiana Tollway in Gary.
Lucas Del Valle, 51, of the 100 block of Graybark Lane in Amherst, Ohio, died of blunt force trauma from the accident on the westbound lanes at mile marker 18, near 15th Avenue, according to the Lake County coroner’s office.
A trooper was among those injured in the 1:30 p.m. CDT crash, but he was expected to be OK. The trooper was transported to a nearby hospital but was reportedly speaking with officers while in transit.
Both directions of the tollway reopened after a closure of several hours.
