GARY, Ind. (AP) — Northern Indiana’s South Shore commuter rail line
suspended service for most of Saturday after a truck lost a load of steel on
tracks near Gary.
Indiana State Police say a semi tractor-trailer jack-knifed on Interstate 90
about 5 a.m. Saturday, sending its load of steel coils rolling down an
embankment. Those coils snapped electrical lines and damaged the tracks
The Times of Munster reports that no South Shore trains were involved in the
accident and no one was injured.
Police say roads were icy and it was snowing at the time of the crash.
South Shore trains resumed service Saturday evening after repairs were made
to the line that runs from South Bend to Chicago. The commuter rail was
scheduled to resume its full weekend schedule on Sunday.
