Two semi-tractor trailers were involved in an accident early this morning which strewed debris across two lanes of I-94 near Chesterton, the Indiana State Police said.

According to police, at 2:15 a.m. trucker Narinder M. Singh, 55, of Brampton, Ontario, was westbound on I-94 when, just east of Chesterton, he sideswiped a second semi parked on the outer shoulder.

The second semi’s driver, Dhimitraq Mangoleci, 30 of Saint Clair Shores, Mich., had stopped to check something on his trailer, police said.

The impact caused both trailers to rip open, police said, with “empty shampoo bottles and cardboard box debris scattered across the right and middle lanes westbound.”

Both lanes were closed until approximately 4:45 a.m. for clean-up and removal.

Neither driver was injured, police said.
