A 19-year-old man was seriously hurt Tuesday evening in a single-vehicle crash in northwest Indiana.
He was driving a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe south about 6 p.m. on Cline Avenue when he tried to make a last-second lane change onto the Interstate 80/94 ramp, according to Indiana State Police.
The Hyundai cut through the solid-white striped lane divider and hit a barrier, police said. The vehicle kept moving west across the I-80/94 ramp and hit a concrete barrier wall, where it came to a rest.
The 19-year-old, of Griffith, Indiana, was taken to Northlake Methodist Hospital in Gary and later taken to Northwestern Memorial Medical Center in Chicago, according to police. He was listed in serious condition.
