A motorist was
killed on Monday in a single-vehicle accident on the Indiana Toll Road in
Porter County, the Indiana State Police said.
The victim was
identified as Ashay V. Kparker M.D., 41, of Burr Ridge, Ill.
police, at 12:03 a.m. Kparker was westbound on the Toll Road when,
approximately two miles east of the Ind. 49 exit, his 2018 Infiniti left the
roadway and hit a guardrail on the south side, causing the vehicle to
“nose-dive into the grassy median, where it came to rest facing eastbound.”
The Porter County
Coroner’s Office pronounced Kparker dead at the scene of blunt force trauma.
“Kparker was not
wearing his seatbelt, which contributed to his fatal injuries,” police said.
The results of a
routine toxicology screen are pending, Coroner Chuck Harris said.
Assisting at the
scene was the Porter County Sheriff’s Police.
