Traffic-Alert
A fatal three-vehicle crash has US 20 shut down for the next few hours in both directions near Springville,  east of Michigan City. At about 11am, LaPorte County Coroner John Sullivan says it appears an elderly woman attempting to make a turn from westbound US 20 onto County Road 325 West  in Springfield Township was rear-ended by one vehicle, which pushed her into the eastbound lanes, where her car was struck by a second vehicle, killing her instantly.  Sullivan says that area is along a particularly dangerous stretch of US 20 because there's no divider. The section of US 20, between I-94 and Rolling Prairie, Sullivan says, historically has seen a number of fatal crashes.
