On a Saturday morning just after 2 a.m., a single vehicle crash occurred in La Porte County, Indiana. The La Porte County Sheriff’s Office received a dispatch to the area of State Road 2 and Old State Road 2 in response to the accident.

The initial investigation revealed that a black GMC Sierra pickup truck had veered off the road, entered a deep ditch, and finally came to a stop in a field. Two individuals were found at the scene, identified as 55-year-old Allan M. Vanblaircom from Valparaiso and 28-year-old Ashlee S. Perrin from Skokie, Illinois.
