PORTER COUNTY, Ind. - A double-wide mobile home fell off a tractor-trailer and onto a northern-Indiana interstate Tuesday, Indiana State Police said.
The crash was reported just after 10:15 a.m. near State Road 49 and Interstate 94 in Chesterton when the semi was coming around the ramp. The mobile home shifted, causing the bolts to break, bend and come off its rig. The home toppled onto the ramp blocking the roadway.
ISP said the 40,000 pound mobile home was being hauled from Topeka, Ind. to Sioux City, Iowa.
The driver, Tracy Blocker, 41, of Pierceton, wasn't injured, but was cited for having inoperable trailer brakes.
The ramp from north bound S.R. 49 to I-94 west bound and the two right lanes of I-94 west bound were closed for several hours.
