The driver was in a black Chevrolet Blazer about 1:50 p.m. on I-94 near mile marker 37 when the SUV slammed into the back of a 1999 Kenworth semi that was disabled on the right shoulder, according to preliminary information from Indiana State Police.

The LaPorte County coroner’s office identified the driver as Steven A. Kowalkoski of Champaign.
