Entry Description

Chesterton, Porter County-At approximately 2:10 p.m., Trooper Ryan Hovarter responded to a semi rollover that caused the ramp from State Road 49 north bound to Interstate 94 east bound to be closed.

Preliminary investigation revealed that a 2004 Freightliner pulling a flatbed trailer, driven by Vasil Simonovski, 24 of Chicago, Illinois was on the ramp going too fast to properly negotiate the curve portion of the ramp. Simonovski could not recall what happened, just that his semi and trailer landed on its side. Simonovski was loaded with a 57,000 pound steel coil on the tarp flatbed trailer. The semi was owned by P I and I Motor Express Inc. out of Masury, Ohio.  The load was coming from Portage, Indiana headed to Mishawaka, Indiana.

Simonovski was taken to Porter Memorial Hospital in Chesterton with non-life threatening injuries.

Simonovski was cited for Speed Too Fast to Avoid a Collision, Over Weight Permit Violation, and Equipment Violations.

Agencies assisting:  Trooper Nedal Nabhan with the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division, Chesterton Police Department, Chesterton Fire Department, Chesterton Street Department, Indiana Department of Transportation and Cloverleaf Wrecker Service.

All criminal defendants are to be presumed innocent until, and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
