A 76-year-old Michigan woman was critically injured Friday when her car crossed the median on Interstate 69 in DeKalb County and collided head-on with a semi.
Marian Montgomery Randall of Bloomfield, Mich., was traveling north on I-69 near the interchange with Indiana 4 about 4:45 p.m. when her 2009 Pontiac G6 veered off the west side of the road, traveled across the median and into the southbound lanes. A 2012 Freightliner, driven by James Michael Gochis of Saline, Mich., was traveling south when Randall’s car crossed into his path, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department said.
Randall was taken to Parkview Regional Medical Center by Samaritan helicopter. She was in critical condition Saturday night, hospital staff said.
Gochis, 64, was taken to DeKalb Health in Auburn to be treated for his injuries, which included a bruise to his right knee and lower back strain, police said.
