VALPARAISO — An elderly man is dead in the wake of a head-on collision with a dump truck at 12:01 p.m. Tuesday at 84 E. Division Road, according to Porter County police.
The Porter County coroner identified the man as David VanDenburgh, 79, of Hebron.
It appears the man crossed left of center while driving a car westbound on the road just south of Valparaiso, said Jeff Biggs, chief deputy at the sheriff's department.
The man was entrapped in his vehicle, Biggs said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
"It is unknown if the elderly male was suffering from a medical condition prior to the crash," Biggs said.
