This past Friday, just before 10:30 pm deputies from the La Porte County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 2500 North block of US Highway 35 in reference to a two-vehicle motor vehicle crash. It was determined that a Chevrolet Cobalt had struck a Toyota Tundra head-on. The Chevrolet was operated by 27 year old Kimberly Morehouse of La Porte, and the Toyota was operated by 45 year old Agustin Flores-Garay of Chicago. Morehouse was pinned in her vehicle and had to be extricated by firemen. Both Morehouse and Flores-Garay were transported to South Bend for treatment of serious injuries. The F.A.C.T. (Fatal Alcohol Crash Team) responded to the scene and determined that prior to the crash, the Chevrolet had been traveling north on US 35 when it crossed the center line and struck the Toyota Tundra, that had been traveling south, nearly head-on. Toxicology results are pending to determine if alcohol/drugs were a factor. The crash remains under investigation.
