Michigan City Woman Pronounced Dead After Fatal Collision
MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. — A Michigan City woman was pronounced dead after a collision early Friday morning according to a Michigan City Police statement.
According to the statement, officers responded to the 1900 block of Springland Avenue at approximately 10:17 a.m. after receiving calls about an automobile accident.
When officers arrived, they discovered a 1993 Chevy Malibu laying on its roof that had struck a NIPSCO utility pole.
Officers stated that the driver, 34-year-old Amanda Trampski was traveling eastbound on Springfield Avenue when she lost control of her vehicle and struck the utility pole causing the vehicle to flip onto its roof.
Trampski was reportedly trapped in her vehicle while bystanders attempted to remove her but were unsuccessful.
Responders with the Michigan City Fire Department arrived and were able to extricate Trampski from the vehicle at which time she was transported to St. Anthony Hospital where she was later pronounced dead due to injuries sustained during the accident.
According to police, it is believed that speed and road conditions were contributing factors to the incident.
The NIPSCO utility pole, as well as some overhead power lines, suffered damage during the collision and workers with the utility company estimate repairs could take up to 6 hours to complete leaving some residents and businesses in the area without power.
