Early this morning Indiana State Troopers were sent to investigate a single vehicle crash involving a semi that was blocking westbound traffic in the construction zone near the 50 mile marker.

Trooper Brett Adair arrived at the crash around 2:30 this morning and saw a green Volvo semi had hit a guardrail, blocking all traffic. While speaking to the driver, Dominik Bielawski-Siwiec (42), of Mount Prospect, Illinois, Trooper Adair suspected the driver had been drinking alcohol and was impaired. After completing the investigation, Trooper Adair placed Bielawski-Siwiec under arrest for operating while intoxicated and transported him to the LaPorte County Jail. Once at the jail, Bielawski-Siwiec tested over three times the legal limit with a blood alcohol count of .25.

Bielawski-Siwiec was arrested on preliminary charges of operating while intoxicated and operating while intoxicated-endangerment. Charges will be presented to the LaPorte County Prosecutor’s Office.

Both empty and full alcohol containers were also located in the semi. It is against Federal Motor Carrier rules to have any alcohol containers, open or closed, in a commercial motor vehicle.

*Persons named as suspects or arrested are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
