Share this post

Portage Police say, at this time, they do not know why the driver of a gray Nissan Altima, which was being pursued by an officer, did not stop when a traffic stop was being initiated early this morning, which led to that vehicle ultimately crossing over to the southbound lane of Willowcreek Road, just north of US 6, resulting in a violent, fiery crash that killed the driver, 40 year old Simon Moffat, and a passenger in the other vehicle. Authorities report the officer observed the suspect vehicle, just before 3am, drive off from the McDonald's drive through window on US 6, at a high rate of speed, and was advised by employees Moffat was acting strange, possibly intoxicated. The driver of the second-vehicle, whose name is also unavailable at last check, was airlifted to a South Bend hospital.  Willowcreek Road was shut down in that area for several hours and an investigation continues.
