STEUBEN COUNTY, IN (WWBT) - A Chesterfield man was killed Thursday morning during a three-vehicle crash in Indiana.

Police were called to Indiana Toll Road around 11:40 a.m.

According to Indiana State Police, Shawn L. Alston, 44, of Chesterfield, was driving a box truck when – for an unknown reason – drove through the center median and into the eastbound lanes of traffic.

A tractor-trailer, driven by Derwin W. Patton, 54, of LaGrange, Indiana, then hit Alston. Due to that crash, another tractor-trailer driven by Sardor Y. Hidirov, 31, of Pittsburgh, then hit Patton.

Alston was pronounced dead at the scene.

Patton was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Hidirov was not injured.

Both Patton and Hidirov were both wearing seatbelts. It is unclear if Alston was wearing his.

The crash remains under investigation.
