A tractor crash in Porter County landed a man in a South Bend hospital.
Indiana State Police say Harold Johns was mowing grass eastbound along the north ditch of I-94 when his tractor stopped because of a bridge in the way.
Johns tried to make a U-turn to get back westbound on the same north shoulder, but troopers say he didn’t stop for a van driven by Andrew Weston. He crashed into Johns’ tractor.
Johns was seriously hurt and taken to a hospital in South Bend.
Weston was not injured and refused medical help. Police do not believe drugs or alcohol were factors.
All westbound lanes of I-94 were closed for 4 hours for crash investigation and cleanup.
