Monday morning at approximately 9:30 a.m., Indiana State Trooper Brant Goubeaux was dispatched to an injury involving a crash on I-80/94 at the 1.8 mile-marker.  Preliminary investigation by Trooper Goubeaux shows that a Nissan was traveling eastbound in lane #2 when the driver of the Nissan failed to slow for the traffic congestion that he was approaching. It appeared that the driver may have taken evasive action and lost control of the Nissan. The Nissan then merged to the right, striking the driver’s side of a semi’s trailer.  The Nissan struck the trailer with such force that it rocked the trailer side to side, causing the trailer to lean onto the roof of the Nissan.  This caused the roof of the Nissan to be pushed down upon the driver, who was the only occupant of the vehicle.  The driver of the Nissan, a 26 year old from Markham, Illinois, had to be extricated from the vehicle. The interstate was briefly closed in both directions for a University of Chicago helicopter to land and take the patient to Chicago for treatment of severe injuries.  The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured. Both of the vehicles involved in the crash were towed from the scene.  The roadway was completely reopened at 11:35 a.m
