HOBART | A 32-year-old Dyer man died early Friday after being struck by a vehicle while crossing U.S. 30, officials said.

Jasmit Paul Dang, of the 2600 block of Calumet Avenue, was pronounced dead of blunt force trauma at 12:15 a.m., according to the Lake County coroner's office.

Hobart police Detective Sgt. Jeremy Ogden said police were called at 11:38 p.m. by a 40-year-old Valparaiso man.

The Valparaiso man, who was driving east on U.S. 30 near Westfield Southlake mall, said he thought he had hit something but he didn't know if it was a person or not.

After arriving at the scene, police saw the body of the Dyer man who had been crossing the divided highway, Ogden said.

Dang had been staying at a nearby hotel.

The driver will not be cited for anything because he stopped and reported the crash, Ogden said.

Darkness and rain Thursday night also contributed to the crash, Ogden said.
