A Hobart man was killed in a wrong-way crash on the Borman Expressway in Gary early Friday.
The man — identified as of 35-year-old Timothy J. Leib — was driving a Honda Ridgeline pickup west in the eastbound lanes when he collided with a semi truck near the Broadway exit at 1:30 a.m., according to a release from Indiana State Police. Police do not know where Leib got on the freeway.
The eastbound semi collided head-on with Leib’s pickup, the release said. Leib was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. All lanes of traffic were reopened by 4:30 a.m.
