Share this post

An East Chicago woman died on Wednesday due to injuries sustained in a three-vehicle crash Monday afternoon at the intersection of State Road 49 and County Road 600 North. The Porter County Sheriff's Office reports 75 year old Patricia Dahlin was conscious after the crash and spoke to medical personnel at the scene, with the only visible injury being a dislocated left elbow. Porter County Coroner Chuck Harris says a brain injury led to her death as a result of the crash.
According to the crash report Patricia Dahlin was a passenger in the vehicle driven by 79 year old Carl Dahlin who was extricated from the vehicle and taken to the hospital. Authorities say the driver of one of the vehicles involved reported she watched the Dahlin vehicle cross from the east to the median on County Road 600 North, but the rear of the vehicle was not completely out of the roadway and she did not have enough time to avoid it and struck the driver's rear side. The third vehicle was stopped in the median, waiting for southbound traffic on State Road 49 to clear, when the previously mentioned impact caused her vehicle to be struck.
