Entry Description

Lake County- At approximately 10:00 a.m., this morning, Master Trooper Aaron Segrest, 53, a twenty nine year veteran of the department was sitting stationary on I-65 north bound at the 251.4 mile marker (south of the US 30/Merrillville exit) on the outer shoulder in his 2010 unmarked Indiana State Police Ford Crown Victoria with all his emergency lights on investigating a two vehicle crash. A 2004 Chevrolet Colorado pickup, driven by Melldoran Rambo, 61 of Star City, Indiana, was north bound in the left lane approaching the crash scene when he stated he was cut off by a semi truck forcing him to brake aggressively to avoid hitting him. This cause the Chevrolet to lose control, spin out across all lanes of I-65 and hit the police car.

The Chevrolet Colorado rear right quarter panel hit the left rear of the police car. The Colorado came to rest blocking both lanes of I-65.

Segrest was taken to Saint Mary’s Medical Center in Hobart with non-life threatening injuries. Rambo and his passenger, Kay Rambo, 62 of Star City, were taken to South Lake Methodist Hospital in Merrillville with non-life threatening injuries.

Both vehicles had to be towed from the scene.

Trooper Jacob Raupp was the investigating officer.
