Griffith Man Dies in Fatal Crash on Broad Street

Share this post

A spokesman for the Lake County Sheriffs Department says their Reconstruction Unit responded to the 14-hundred block of South Broad Street in unincorporated Griffith overnight to investigate a fatal motor vehicle crash involving a passenger vehicle and a dump truck hauling asphalt for a local construction project. Police say their preliminary investigation revealed that the dump truck was southbound on Broad Street when a northbound Pontiac crossed the double yellow center line and collided head-on with the oncoming truck. The driver of the dump truck, a 51-year-old Highland man, suffered no injuries, but was transported to a local hospital for evaluation and mandatory testing in accordance with INDOT regulations. Authorities say the 19 year old driver of the Pontiac, identified by the Lake County Coroners office today as Cody Lejeune (leh-zhoon') of Griffith, was pronounced dead at the scene.
