Share this post

Authorities today report a Valparaiso man killed in a single-vehicle crash outside Michigan City early Saturday had a blood-alcohol level nearly three-times the legal limit. The Times reports the 32 year old was traveling too fast while heading south on County Road 525 West, near Warnke Road, where he reportedly failed to negotiate a curve and went into the northbound lane before leaving the roadway, striking a fence, and hitting a tree head-on, causing the Valparaiso man, and his 36 year old passenger from California, to be ejected. According to the article, the Valparaiso man was pronounced dead at the scene, while his passenger was eventually transported to a South Bend hospital.
