FREMONT, Ind. (WOWO): A Wisconsin man died and another person was injured in a crash on the Toll Road on Thursday.

Orland and Fremont rescue crews responded to the 133 miler marker on eastbound Indiana Toll Road on around 9:15 a.m. Thursday on reports of a crash, according to the Orland Fire Department.

The Michigan man was airlifted to a Fort Wayne hospital in critical condition.

Both eastbound lanes of the Toll Road was closed for a portion of the day on Thursday.
