GARY, Ind. (AP) - In a story Jan. 9 about a highway collision that killed a truck driver, The Associated Press misidentified the location of the collision. It happened on Interstate 80/94, not the Indiana Toll Road.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Truck driver from northern Indiana killed in crash

Truck driver from northern Indiana killed when he gets pinned under 2 trucks on highway

GARY, Ind. (AP) - A truck driver from northern Indiana whose vehicle was disabled along Interstate 80/94 in Gary was killed when two other trucks collided

Indiana State Police say 38-year-old Marvin Reinholtz of Osceola was pinned under two tires. Osceola is about 10 miles east of South Bend. Police say he was killed in the collision early Friday.

Police say a truck with no trailer lost control in the snow and started to spin and was hit by a semi pulling double trailers. The first truck spun again and struck the disabled truck.

Reinholtz was found pinned under the front right tire of his own tractor and the rear left tire of the first truck. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
