WILLS TWP. — A La Porte County Sheriff's SUV was crushed — with the deputy still inside — after a semi truck knocked an irrigation tower on top of it Tuesday afternoon near Rolling Prairie.

Now the semi driver is facing citations for failure to yield right-of-way to an emergency vehicle, unsafe lane movement, improper lane usage on a three or more-lane roadway, and hauling 20,000 more pounds than his vehicle was permitted to carry, according to the sheriff's department
