Trooper Jeff Council Injured in Truck Accident in Portage, IN

Portage, IN -- October 31, 2022, Trooper Jeff Council was injured due to an accident where a truck crashed into his patrol vehicle.

Authorities said that the accident took place at around 1:30 p.m. outside of Portage along I-94. It appears roadways were wet at the time when a car lost control and hydroplaned. A tractor-trailer jackknifed when the car entered its path, then crashed into the patrol vehicle of State Trooper Jeff Council.

After the crash, Trooper Council was taken from the scene with unspecified injuries. It appears no one else was hurt. At this time, no further information is available.

Commentary on Trooper Jeff Council Truck Accident in Portage

Trooper Jeff Council Injured in Truck Accident in Portage, IN

While the reports on this may seem straight forward right now, this is a complex multi-vehicle wreck involving a commercial truck. These situations are rarely simple, which is why it usually takes more thorough independent investigations to make sure all the facts are clear. Were there any mechanical issues? Road hazards? Worn tires? Distracted driving? Is this stretch of road unusually hazardous? Likely or not, getting someone the help they need means ensuring nothing important slips through the cracks. I see no reason why this wreck would be an exception to that.
