LAFAYETTE, Ind. - A suspected drunken driver was killed Friday after colliding with a semi-truck in Tippecanoe County.
Indiana State Police said a white 1998 Isuzu Trooper was traveling northbound on I-65 approximately four miles north of State Road 43 when it pulled in front of a semi-truck and then apparently lost control and went off the roadway.
Police said the semi, which was pulling a load of Hostess foods headed for Illinois, changed lanes to avoid the Isuzu – however the SUV cut back across the interstate and drove under the semi, causing the truck to run over it.
The driver of the SUV, identified as Michael E. Snodgrass, 52, of Pinellas Park, Fla., was taken to IU Health Arnett Hospital in Lafayette, where he was later pronounced dead.
Police said Snodgrass had a BAC of .29 percent at the time of the collision.
The driver of the semi-truck was not injured.
