During Monday night’s North Judson Town Council meeting, a first reading of what’s being called the Truck Route ordinance was presented.
A man from North Judson has died after an accident Friday morning that took place in LaPorte County. At around 9 a.m., Thomas Schwab, 46, was hit by a semi truck as he was crossing U.S. 30 on Ind. 39 near Hannah.
The damage to Schwab’s vehicle trapped him and he had to be removed by authorities. He was pronounced dead on the scene. The county coroner said alcohol was not involved, and an investigation is underway to determine which vehicle had the right-of-way.
Funeral arrangements are pending at O’Donnell Funeral Home in North Judson.
