A northwest Indiana man was killed in a wrong-way crash on the Borman Expressway in Gary, Ind., early Friday.
The man -- identified as of 35-year-old Timothy J. Leib of Hobart, Ind. -- was driving a Honda Ridgeline pickup west in the eastbound lanes when he collided with a semi truck near the Broadway Exit at 1:30 a.m., according to a release from Indiana State police. Police do not know where Leib got on the freeway.
The semi driver was eastbound when another semi in front of him swerved suddenly, the release said. The semi then collided head-on with Leib’s pickup.
Leib was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the release.
Police believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. All lanes of traffic were reopened by 4:30 a.m.
