The Porter County Sheriff’s Police has determined which driver crossed the center line on Feb. 16 in the double-fatal head-on collision in Boone Township.

Sgt. Larry LaFlower told the Chesterton Tribune after deadline on Friday that investigators have determined that Jessica Trzepacz, 33--who was northbound in the 700 west block of Ind. 2--drove left of center and struck head on a second motorist, Laurel Donner, 56, of Valparaiso.

Both Trzepacz and Donner were pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Both had to be extricated from their vehicles. Donner’s passenger, John Donner, 62, also of Valparaiso, was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The results of routine toxicology screens are pending.
