  • A crash that closed westbound I-94 for hours Tuesday was caused by a lawnmower making a U-turn on the highway, according to Indiana State Police. Officers believe the driver of the tractor pulling the mower tried to turn around at a bridge near State Road 49, but drove into the path of a van traveling in the right lane.
