Toll Road reopens after semi-car collision

SOUTH BEND — The Indiana Toll Road has reopened after an early morning crash.

The Indiana State Police report they responded to a crash on the Indiana Toll Road at 3:55 a.m. this morning. The accident happened in the west bound lanes at the 68.5 mile marker, just west of the South Bend exit.

At this time the driving lane of the Toll Road remains closed for cleanup while traffic is moving smoothly in the passing lane. Drivers can expect minimal delays as cleanup continues over the next two hours.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the driver of a westbound Volvo semi tractor trailer was attempting to pass a Toyota Camry when he lost control of his truck and side swiped the Toyota. The collision caused both vehicles to leave the roadway and end up in the north ditch. The area was experiencing heavy rainfall at the time.

The driver of the semi, Bekzod R. Sabirov, 25, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was cited by police for driving too fast for the weather conditions. He was treated and released at the scene by medical personnel. The driver of the Toyota, Linda R. Rogow, 63, of Glendale, Wis., was also treated and released at the scene. Rogow was initially trapped in her car and had to be extricated by emergency personnel.
