A motorist was seriously injured on Monday in a rollover accident on Ind. 2 in Boone Township, the Porter County Sheriff’s Police said.

As of this morning, the PCSP had not released the motorist’s name.

According to police, at 1:54 p.m. Monday the motorist was northbound on Ind. 2, south of C.R. 100S, when that person’s red 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass left the roadway to the east for unknown reasons, striking a utility pole and an embankment, then rolling over. The motorist was ejected from the vehicle and subsequently airlifted to Memorial Hospital in South Bend with “serious internal injuries,” police said.

That motorist is also believed to have been previously involved in a hit-and-run on Ind. 2 in the area of Southfield Lane, police added, in which the Oldsmobile rear-ended a Von Tobel’s delivery truck. The driver of the truck advised police that a red or maroon passenger vehicle “came up behind him at a high rate of speed, struck the rear of his delivery truck, then passed him at excessive speeds continuing northeast on Ind. 2.”

Speed is believed to be a contributing factor to the crash, police said, and the results of a toxicology screen are pending.
