LIBERTY TOWNSHIP | A South Haven man died Tuesday night after a head-on crash on Ind. 149 near County Road 900 North, authorities said.

Glenn Jennings, 68, was driving a 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche south on Ind. 149 about 5 p.m. when he entered the northbound lane and was struck head-on by a semitractor and trailer, according to the Porter County Sheriff's Department.

The man suffered massive internal injuries, Porter County Coroner Chuck Harris said. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 5:53 p.m.

The drive of the semi was not injured in the crash, police said.

The Sheriff's Department Reconstruction Team is still investigating the crash. Indiana State Police also are helping with an inspection of the 2013 International semi and trailer, officials said.

Drugs and alcohol are not suspected in the crash, but the coroner's office will conduct standard toxicology tests on Jennings, police said.
