A 24-year-old Gary man was killed and three other people were injured in a head-on crash Tuesday morning in northwest Indiana.

About 10 a.m., Adonis Florence was at the wheel of a Honda heading northbound in the 4600 block of Cleveland Street in unincorporated Calumet Township when it crossed the center line and into oncoming traffic, hitting a Volvo, according to the Lake County sheriff’s and coroner’s offices.

Florence was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said. He lived in the 1200 block of West Fifth Avenue.

A 37-year-old Griffith woman riding as passenger in the Honda was ejected from the car and taken to a hospital in critical condition, sheriff’s police said.

The 26-year-old Hammond woman driving the Volvo had to be extricated by firefighters and airlifted to a hospital, police said. The 7-year-old boy riding in the car with her was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening.

Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
