Kentland, IN – A crash early this morning at the intersection of US Route 41 and 24 sent two men to the hospital, the Newton County Sheriff’s Department reported.

According to police, the incident occurred just before 5 a.m. when a 54-year-old Chicago man driving a pickup truck with a car hauler allegedly blew a stop sign and collided with a southbound semi driven by a 36-year-old Wisconsin man. Dense fog was reported at the time, contributing to the hazardous driving conditions.

Both drivers were transported to a local hospital, where they were treated for minor injuries. The collision caused significant damage to both vehicles and required an extensive cleanup operation. The intersection was closed for several hours as crews worked to clear the wreckage and ensure the area was safe for traffic.
