Chicago man files claim after car plunges off Indiana bridge that was under construction.

In March 2015 a man and his wife drove off a demolished Northwest Indiana bridge.  The man survived the crash but was severely injured.  His wife unfortunately perished.  The man has recently filed a lawsuit in Lake County alleging that the Indiana Department of Transportation ("IDOT") and contractors failed to provide adequate warning signs and barriers before the demolished bridge. The man claims he was following GPS directions and did not appreciate that the road was closed and the bridge was gone.
