Driver’s sneeze attack results in fatal 3-vehicle crash in northwest Indiana – NBC Chicago


A drive-by sneeze attack led to a driver inadvertently causing a collision with three cars that left a 61-year-old man dead in Valparaiso on Friday, Porter County officials say.

Police say the accident happened late Friday afternoon when a 69-year-old man sneezed three times in a row while driving and did not realize the car in front of him had stopped in the 200 block of US 6.

The driver of the car hit from behind by the sneezing driver told police he was stopped while waiting for a vehicle to turn left when the impact of the crash pushed his vehicle in eastbound traffic, crashing into another vehicle.

The driver of the eastbound vehicle, David Klemp, 61, of Liberty Township, was killed in the accident.

Police said the driver of the first vehicle involved underwent an alcohol consumption test and showed no signs of being intoxicated.

There is currently no further information available.
