A Crown Point man was injured on Thursday after crashing his vehicle on I-65 in Lake County, the Indiana State Police said.

According to police, at 4:40 a.m. John J. Berrios Jr., 32, was southbound on I-65 at the 257 mile marker, one mile south of Ridge Road, when for unknown reasons he left the roadway, struck the concrete median barrier, bounced back across all lanes of southbound traffic, and hit a guardrail on the outer shoulder.

Berrios’ 1998 Ford came to rest partially in the right lane, police said.

Berrios was admitted to Southlake Methodist Hospital in Merrillville for head injuries, police said.

“Alcohol is a factor in this crash,” police said.
