Two young people were killed in the crash Tuesday morning August 24th on U.S. 30 just west of the intersection with Oak Drive.
At 7:24 Marshall County 911 received a call of a motor vehicle accident on U.S. 30 in the eastbound lanes and west of the railroad crossing in the construction zone.
Plymouth Police responded to find an accident involving two semi tractors and a passenger vehicle. All vehicles were in the right eastbound lane of U.S. 30.
The crash investigation found that 28-year-old Inderjit Singh Sidu from Stockton, CA was driving a 2019 Freightliner that rear ended a 2009 Nissan Rogue that was stopped in traffic.
