Share this post

LaPorte County Sheriffs Police say an 85-year-old man was flown to a South Bend hospital after a single-vehicle crash on County Line Road at the Porter/LaPorte county line near Michigan City.  LaPorte County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Jim Sosinski says the man appears to have had some type of diabetic episode.  Police say the vehicle went off the road and struck several trees.  He was entrapped, police say, and had to be extricated.  At around 11:30 Wednesday morning, US 20 was closed for a short period of time so a medical helicopter could land on the highway near County Line Road to transport the man, James Downs of rural LaPorte County, from the scene.
