Trucker killed when semi collides with SUV on US 30

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - The driver of a tractor-trailer was killed in a crash on U.S. 30 near West County Line Road Thursday evening.

The crash happened around 7:30 p.m. near the county line between Allen and Whitley counties.

Police said the semi was traveling east on U.S. 30 and ran a red light. The driver collided with an SUV attempting to cross the intersection.

The truck driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The Allen County Coroner on Friday identified him as 29-year-old Michael Charles Gonsior of Fort Wayne.

A Columbia City woman and her two children were in the vehicle but suffered only minor injuries.

The crash caused the semi to flip on its side. The eastbound lanes of U.S. 30 were closed for several hours while police investigated.
