Laporte, Indiana (Market News )
Pastor Kevin Galloway of LaPorte have died after a fatal car accident involving a semitractor-trailer and freightliner truck on the Indiana Toll Road.
It was reported that Pastor Kevin was driving on the wrong way of the road when he collided with the tractor trailer.
The crash occurred at about 3.5 miles west of the Lake Station exit, according to statement made by Sgt. Ted Bohner, a state police.
Investigators determined that Kevin Galloway, 50, was driving a 2019 Toyota Avalon west in the eastbound lanes on the toll road before the crash, Bohner said. A semitractor-trailer driving in the right line was able to swerve to avoid the Toyota, but the Toyota then collided with a white 2012 Freightliner, the release states. The Chicago Tribune reported.
Meanwhile friends and relatives of the Pastor took to social media to pay tributes to the late Pastor.

My family’s heart is very heavy tonight. We just lost the best pastor my daughter and I have ever known to a fatal car accident this morning.
Christ Church will never be the same without him. He never cared about money, he was always concerned about every single member in our church.
He was a perfect example of a family man. Loved by his children and his beautiful wife. He was the only pastor my daughter ever understood and looked up to. He baptized us as well as many others. The pain and emptiness is real tough to bear.
Rest in peace Kevin Galloway until we all meet again in heaven. I pray his family will have comfort and strength during this difficult time. He will be greatly missed by many.
