Yesterday, our department responded to the area of SR 149 & CR 875N for a 3 vehicle head-on accident involving a overturned semi with a spilled load. Unfortunately, this accident did claim one life.
Our crews remained on scene for nearly 5 hours to assist with traffic control and extrication. We would like to thank the Liberty Township Volunteer Fire Department for responding to the call initially with us. Thanks also to the Union Volunteer Fire Department, who covered our area during this incident, as well as the Porter County Sheriff's Department and Porter County Central Dispatch.
Our thoughts are with the family of the victim.
