FORT WAYNE, Indiana (WANE) — Indiana State Police (ISP) are investigating a November 2022 crash that caused significant damage to an overpass bridge on US 30 below US 33.
According to the ISP, the crash occurred around 5:00 p.m. on November 16, 2022 and involved a tractor-trailer truck towing a John Deere excavator.
ISP said the incident was initially not reported until Purdue University sent video footage of the crash to INDOT from a camera Purdue had used on a building construction project.
INDOT later carried out an inspection of the bridge and found extensive damage.
Upon receipt of the footage, ISP conducted an investigation and identified the affected trailer truck as a white 2014 or newer Kenworth T880.
ISP said the excavator might be a John Deere 135G or 160G.
The last known location of the tractor trailer involved was westbound on US 30 toward Columbia City, and investigators were unable to locate or identify the vehicle and driver involved.
Anyone with information that might help the ISP identify the driver or vehicles involved in the accident should contact the ISP at 260-432-8661.
ISP said anyone who comes forward can keep personal information confidential.
