[ISP] Mobile Home Falls off Trailer onto I-94
Start Date: 4/29/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 4/29/2014
Entry Description
Chesterton, Porter County-As half of a double wide mobile home was being transported, the inadequate securement broke and the mobile home came off its frame, blocking the ramp from north bound State Road (S.R.) 49 to west bound I-94 and two lanes of west bound I-94.

Preliminary investigation by Sergeant Lee Wright revealed that at approximately 10:15 a.m., this Tuesday, April 29, 2014, morning a 1982 International, owned by Star Fleet Incorporated out of Goshen, Indiana and driven by Tracy L. Blocher, 41 of Pierceton, Indiana, was hauling a half of a double wide mobile home (16 feet wide by 76 feet long). The 2014 Champion mobile home manufactured in Topeka, Indiana was being transported to Sioux City, Iowa; it was also accompanied by two vehicle escorts. As the semi was coming around the curve of north bound S.R. 49 to I-94 west bound the home shifted causing the bolts to break, bent and come out. This caused the mobile home to fall off blocking the ramp and roadway.

The mobile home weighs approximately 40,000 pounds and sustained several thousand dollars in damage. Blocher was not injured and has been cited for inadequate securement and inoperative trailer brakes.
