A Hammond woman involved in a one-car crash on I-65 just after 6 p.m. Monday remains hospitalized in good condition at Franciscan St. Anthony Health in Crown Point, according to hospital officials.
Robin Dean Krueger, 43, of Hammond, had to be extricated from her car after she lost control and overcorrected, crashing into the cable barrier on I-65 about four miles south of Crown Point, police said. She was taken to Franciscan St. Anthony Health in Crown Point in extremely critical condition, Indiana State Police said.
Hospital spokesman William Bero said Krueger remained hospitalized Wednesday in good condition. Bero said he could not comment further due to Health Information Protection Act laws.
Drugs were determined to be a contributing factor in the crash, according to police. Krueger’s vehicle was a total loss. A small dog was recovered unharmed at the scene and turned over to Lake County Animal Control.
Sgt. Ann Wojas, Indiana State Police public information officer, said tests conducted for alcohol were negative. Wojas said police officers have not yet been able to talk to Krueger.
