CHESTERTON | Police responded to a crash here Monday night involving a bicycle rider and porta-potty door.

Police were called to assist EMS just before 7:30 p.m. Monday because of an incident on town property near the intersection of Porter Avenue and 5th Street.

According to the victims and a witness, a 52-year-old Chesterton man was riding his bicycle on the sidewalk, passing a portable restroom at the same time a 68-year-old Pleasant Township man was exiting the restroom.
