Four persons were injured on Wednesday in what appears to have been a weather-related accident on U.S. Highway 20, the Porter Fire Department is reporting.

Fire Chief Jay Craig told the Chesterton Tribune this morning that the two-vehicle crash occurred at 6:45 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of U.S. 20 between Tremont Road and Hadenfelt Road. The occupant of one of the vehicles was transported to the trauma center at Methodist Hospital Northlake Campus in Gary, and the three occupants of the other vehicle to Porter Regional Hospital.

Craig was unable to say how exactly the crash occurred except that he believes a contributing factor was the snow.

The Chesterton FD assisted at the scene.

The PFD cleared the scene at 7:17 p.m.
