Police: Semitrailer veers off road, driver killed

Posted: Updated:

PORTAGE, Ind. (AP) - State police say a truck driver was killed when the semitrailer he was driving west on the Indiana Toll Road veered off the interstate and struck a concrete bridge deck.

The victim has been identified as 48-year-old Michael Hall of Covington, Ga., about 35 miles east of Atlanta. State police say the accident happened about 9:35 a.m. Sunday in Porter County, about 5 miles west of State Road 49. Police say they don't know what caused Hall to veer off the highway.

Hall was ejected and pinned under the box trailer. He was pronounced dead at Porter Regional Hospital in Valparaiso.

The semi was loaded with frozen dinners that were strewn across the median and road.
