A witness told investigators she found the driver, 59-year old Terry Gilmore, naked when she went to check on him right after the accident on U.S. Rte. 6. No charges were filed, and Gilmore was taken to LaPorte Hospital as a precaution, police said.

The crash caused officers to close a portion of the road for more than three hours.
