Driver killed when car strikes disabled semi

Indiana State Police are investigating a fatal crash on I-94 near the 37 mile marker, about 3 miles east of the U.S. 421 exit in Michigan City. The crash occurred at 1:52 p.m. Wednesday and involved a semi truck and an SUV. Initial investigation indicated the 1999 Kenworth semi was pulled off onto the right shoulder, when a black Chevrolet Blazer struck it from behind. It is unknown what caused the Blazer to leave the roadway, as the semi was disabled and parked well off the road at the time. The driver of the Blazer was killed, but their name was being withheld pending notification of family.
