One Michigan man was killed and three others were injured in a rollover crash Friday night in northwest Indiana.

The 2009 Toyota pickup truck was in the middle lane of westbound I-80/94 near the Ripley Street exit in Lake Station during a heavy downpour just before 7 p.m. Friday when the pickup went off the road to the north and struck a guardrail, causing it to roll over an unknown amount of times, according to Indiana State Police.

One of the backseat passengers, 21-year-old Alfonzo Balboa, Jr., was ejected from the pickup, which rolled on top of him, state police said. He was asleep and not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

Balboa, of Galesburg, Michigan, was taken to Methodist Northlake Hospital in Gary, then transferred to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where he died at 4:45 p.m. Saturday, according to state police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The driver, a 21-year-old man from Kalamazoo, Michigan, was also not wearing a seat belt and taken to Methodist Northlake with non-life-threatening injuries, state police said.

The front seat passenger, a 20-year-old Kalamazoo man, and the second backseat passenger, a 21-year-old Kalamazoo man, were both wearing their seat belts and taken to Methodist Northlake with non-life-threatening injuries, state police said.
