Victims names released in fatal I-94 crash
The names of the three victims in the I-94 crash in Indiana have been released.
LaPorte County Coroner John Sullivan says husband and wife, Thomas and Marilyn Wolma, 67-years-old and 65-years-old, from Grand Rapids Michigan were killed.
The other fatality was Jerry Dalrymple, 65, from Chicago. He was headed to Laporte to visit relatives when he was killed. Jerry was pronounced dead at the scene. His dog also died in the crash.
They were all riding in cars.
Twenty people were injured in the crash and 17 of those people were taken to Franciscan St. Anthony Hospital in Michigan City.
Many of the victims were pulled from mangled cars wedged under trucks.
Two of the people who were injured are in critical conditions. Their names are Henry Imboden, 79, from Merrillville and Jeffery Renelle, 48, from Ada, Mich.
At least one paramedic was injured at the crash scene, another one suffered hypothermia.
The Laporte County coroner says the crash was the worst he’s seen in his entire career.
And, he says it’s a miracle more people weren’t killed.
