The Lake County Sheriff’s Department says a Crown Point man is dead after a weekend crash into a tree.
The Department says 80-year-old Paul Plumer was driving his 1997 Buick LeSabre westbound when it went off the road and collided with a tree in the 7500 block of East 117th Avenue in Crown Point.
Department Sargeant Patti Van Til says Lake County Police Department Traffic Crash Investigation Unit Officers responded to the crash yesterday at approximately 2:25 p.m.
Plumer was transported to St. Mary Medical Center in Hobart, where he was pronounced dead.
Van Til says the accident remains under investigation, and speed and icy road conditions possibly contributed to the crash.
