Back To Front Page


A Hebron man was killed early this morning in an accident on Ind. 2 in Porter Township, the Porter County Sheriff’s Police is reporting.

Coroner Chuck Harris has identified the man as Ronald L. Sheets, 60.

According to police, at 6:16 a.m. Sheets was northbound on Ind. 2, in the area of C.R. 450S just north of Hebron, when he attempted to pass another vehicle and lost control of his 2008 Ford F-150. Harris said that Sheets appeared to have hit a patch of black ice.

The pickup truck then left the roadway to the west, traveled 50 to 75 yards into a cornfield, and rolled several times, police said.

Sheets--who was wearing a seatbelt at the time--was pronounced dead at the scene of blunt force injuries.

The results of a routine toxicology screen are pending, Harris said.
