A trucker was seriously injured on Wednesday after an unknown object struck his windshield on I-80/94 in Portage, the Indiana State Police said.

According to police, at 9:50 a.m. Kahlil A. Blasingame, 23, of Phoenix, Ill., was eastbound in the center lane when, two miles east of the Ripley Street exit, “an object struck the windshield of the truck.”

“The object appeared to have penetrated the windshield, which resulted in the glass shattering,” police said. “The driver suffered serious injuries that resulted in his having to be flown to Chicago from the scene for treatment.”

The ISP did not identify the object in question.
