A Nebraska man is dead after a crash on the Indiana Toll Road Tuesday night, according to Indiana State Police.

It happened at 10:23 near the 100 mile marker which is not far from the State Road 15 exit in Bristol. Police have identified the victim as 44-year-old Shawn Young of Aurora, NE.

Westbound traffic was diverted onto State Road 15 for more than an hour, but we're told traffic is back up and running.

A semi truck driver had slowed down for a fire truck but witnesses say the driver of a 2003 white Chevy Corvette never slowed down and slammed into the back of the truck. The car became wedged under the trailer.

Police could not give us any additional details on the Corvette driver, who died at a local hospital after being airlifted. They say they will release that information when family members have been notified. The truck driver, a 34-year-old Ohio man, was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released.

We'll bring you more information on this crash as it becomes available both on air and online at FOX28.com.
