The Steuben County Sheriff’s Office says a 28-year-old Angola woman was critically injured Sunday when her car rear-ended a semi and became lodged under the truck’s trailer on Interstate 69 near the Angola exit.
The crash, which closed the highway for three hours, happened when the semi, driven by 23-year-old Marcus Dunlop II of Zionsville, was merging into southbound traffic from the berm of the highway near the U.S. 20 interchange.
A car, driven by Christy Keaton ran into Dunlop’s semi and became lodged under the trailer. It took rescuers 52 minutes to dislodge the car and free Keaton, who was flown to Parkview Hospital in critical condition. Dunlop was uninjured.
