[ISP] Gary Police Officer Hurt in Crash
Start Date: 3/23/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 3/23/2014
Entry Description
Gary, Lake County-A Gary Police officer was injured this morning when a pick-up pulling a small trailer lost control and hit the officer’s police car.

Preliminary investigation by Sergeant Wanda Clay revealed that at approximately 8:24 a.m., this Sunday, March 23, 2014, morning a 2003 Ford F150 pick-up pulling a small trailer, driven by Todd A Vohwinkle, 52 of Mattawan, Michigan was west bound on I-80 at the 6.9 mile marker (this is east of Burr Street) in the left middle lane when he lost control. Vohwinkle stated that he was driving slower than the posted 55 mile per hour posted speed limit due to the moderate snow and icy road conditions when an unknown vehicle passed him on the left at a higher rate of speed. Vohwinkle’s pick-up and trailer began to fishtail, lost control, and went across all lanes of west bound traffic to the right (north). Vohwinkle was unable to gain control of his vehicle and went head on into the driver’s door of a Gary police car that was traveling in the exit lane for Burr Street.

The 2010 Ford Crown Victoria marked Gary police car, driven by Gary Police Officer Shane S. Bolde, 38, a twelve year veteran of their department, was then pushed into the concrete barrier wall on the north side.

Bolde was taken to North Lake Methodist Hospital in Gary with non-life threatening injuries. Bolde and Vohwinkle were both wearing their seat belts. Vohwinkle was not injured. The police car had to be towed from the scene.
