GARY, Ind. (AP) — Authorities have identified the two people killed after lightning strikes in northwestern Indiana.
The Lake County coroner's office says 28-year-old Angelo Santucci of Hobart was pronounced dead at a hospital about an hour after he was injured Thursday.
Emergency crews were called about 11:30 a.m. Thursday to where Santucci was working on a billboard along Interstate 80/94. The Times of Munster and the Post-Tribune of Merrillville report Santucci suffered multiple burns and went into cardiac arrest. A partner working with him wasn't hurt.
The coroner's office says 45-year-old Jacquelyn Allen died after suffering severe burns in a fire at a Gary home about 5 miles northeast of the billboard. A 9-month-old child was taken from the house to a Chicago hospital, but information on the child's condition wasn't immediately available.
