BURNS HARBOR, Ind. (AP) — State police say a construction worker was killed along a northwestern Indiana interstate early Friday when a semi truck collided with his vehicle, sending it careening into the worker. Indiana Sate Police say the accident prompted the temporary closure of Interstate 94’s eastbound lanes in Porter County in the Burns Harbor area. Westbound lanes remained open. State Police Sgt. Mike Fifield tells WLS-TV that the construction worker had pulled over to take down signage about 2 a.m. when a semi that had left the roadway struck the vehicle the worker had just exited. The worker was then hit by his own vehicle and killed.
