A Valparaiso man died on Saturday in a single-vehicle accident on U.S. Highway 6 in Liberty Township, the Porter County Sheriff’s Police said.

Coroner Chuck Harris has identified the victim as Erich Goranson, 29.

According to police, at 9:47 p.m. Goranson was westbound on U.S. 6 when, while traveling on the Ind. 49 overpass, his 1999 GMC Suburban left the roadway to the right, striking first the guard rail and then a light pole near the southbound Ind. 49 exit ramp.

Goranson was ejected from the Suburban and pronounced dead at the scene.

Assisting at the scene were the Chesterton Police Department, Indiana State Police, Liberty Township Volunteer Fire Department, and Porter EMS.

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