HAMOND, Ind. (WISH) — A Sunday morning crash on Interstate 80/94 killed one person, Indiana State Police say.

Police say officers were sent to the 3.9 mile marker after a report of a disabled semitruck at 7:47 a.m.

The semitruck was traveling eastbound and lost air pressure to its brakes, according to ISP. A Chevrolet Malibu was traveling behind the semitruck and rear-ended it. It is unclear why the driver failed to stop.

The driver of the Malibou was pronounced dead by the Lake County Coroner’s Office.
