WILLS TOWNSHIP —  A LaPorte County Sheriff's squad car was struck in a three-vehicle chain-reaction crash involving agricultural equipment, police said. 

Around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, police closed down the westbound lanes of Indiana 2 at County Road 600 East in rural LaPorte County for a crash investigation, LaPorte County Sheriff Capt. Derek Allen said. 

The crash happened just before 1:30 p.m., when a tractor-trailer crashed into irrigation equipment that was being towed by a wide load hauling vehicle, Allen said. After being struck, the irrigation equipment collided with a marked LaPorte County Sheriff's squad car.  

No one was injured in the wreck, Allen said. The vehicles involved were damaged and the police car had to be towed from the scene.
