Hammond PD Doing Enforcement this Memorial Day Weekend

Share this post

Hammond PD
Hammond Police are reminding the public about the dangers of drinking and driving after a couple of alcohol-related crashes this month, one of which was fatal. Lt. Patrick Vicari says 20 year old Tyler Hill died on May 10th, the day after losing control of his vehicle, due to massive internal injuries, after losing control of his vehicle and spun into the eastbound lane where he was struck by a van, whose driver was charged with driving while intoxicated. Another incident on May 18th, at 165th Street and Madison Avenue , resulted in a Hammond woman suffering non-life threatening but debilitating spinal injuries, after her vehicle was struck by another vehicle that failed to yield the right-of-way. Lt. Vicari says in this case, the driver, John Atchley, fled the scene, but was later located and arrested, and that was also a factor in the crash. Lt. Vicari says officers will be out doing enforcement this Memorial Day weekend, and urges residents that if must drink, please do not drive.
