Nebraska man killed in Toll Road crash

BRISTOL — A two-vehicle crash on the Indiana Toll Road in Bristol Tuesday night killed a Nebraska man.

Dead is Shawn W. Young, 44, of Aurora.

Shortly after 10 p.m. Tuesday, Indiana State Police responded to reports of a crash on the Toll Road near the 100.5-mile marker. State police arrived to find a white 2003 Chevrolet Corvette convertible that had collided with a semi tractor trailer. Young was the Corvette driver.

Police said the driver of the semi tractor trailer was stopped in traffic in the westbound lane due to a backup that had been caused by the truck fire earlier near the 97-mile marker. A witness to the crash said the driver of the Corvette never slowed down prior to the vehicle hitting the rear bumper of the semi trailer. The impact from the crash wedged the car under the semi trailer.

The driver of the semi, Jakltongir Zakurlaev, 34, of West Chester, Ohio, received only minor injuries from the crash. He was taken to Elkhart General Hospital where he was treated and released. Young was transported by helicopter to South Bend Memorial Hospital where he later died due to severe injuries suffered in the accident.
