On Indiana Toll Road, a trucker from Morrisville, Pennsylvania died after being run over by another truck while standing safely away from traffic. This took place at the I-80/90 Toll Road near Shipshewana in LaGrange County shortly after midnight on Sunday, February 20, 2022.
The truck driver was later identified as Shamshitdin Nuridinov, 45, of Morrisville, Pennsylvania. Sadly he was killed instantly. According to Indiana State Police, Nuridinov was driving a 2019 Volvo semi-tractor/trailer that had allegedly run out of gas and was disabled on the right shoulder of the westbound lanes.
The vehicle collided with the semi-left trailer’s rear, then side-swiped the cab, drove off the road ahead of the disabled semi, slammed through a guard rail, ran over Nuridinov, and finally came to a stop after hitting a concrete abutment.
The other truck driver, Joseph Jett, 35, of Ambridge, Pennsylvania, was not hurt, but he was sent to the hospital to be checked out because of the seriousness of the accident.
