A Valparaiso resident died from injuries after losing control of his vehicle on Saturday in the area of Indiana 2 and County Road 350 South in Porter Township, the Porter County Sheriff’s Police said.
According to police, at 10:25 p.m. Jonathan Knopf, 20, was southbound on Indiana 2 when the Buick passenger vehicle he was driving went off the roadway and rolled over on its roof.
Knopf was transported to St. Anthony’s in Crown Point where he later died from his injuries sustained in the crash, police said. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash, police said, and toxicology tests will be performed by the Lake County Coroner’s Office.
Two passengers, a 17 year-old and an 18 year-old, sustained minor injuries in the crash, police said.
