Critical Injury Accident


Date:                                     Friday, June 9, 2017


Time:                                    1:20 p.m.


Location:                            9900 Block Coldwater Road




Fort Wayne police responded to the report of an injury accident involving three motor vehicles in the 9900 block of Coldwater Road at approximately 1:20 p.m. this afternoon. Officers once on scene confirmed three vehicles were involved and that there were two patients. Both injured parties were taken to local hospital where one was determined to be in serious condition and the second in critical condition. Both patients came from a Cadillac that was involved, the driver and its passenger. Occupants in the other two vehicles refused treatment and transport from the scene.


Based on witness accounts the Cadillac was traveling south on Coldwater and reportedly observed driving in and out of its lane of travel prior to the incident. The Cadillac drove left of center as it rounded a curve sideswiping a north bound vehicle and then crashed head-on into a third vehicle which was also traveling north on Coldwater Road. Coldwater Road was completely shut down between DuPont Road and Till Road for approximately 3.5 hours as investigators documented the scene.


This incident remains under investigation by the FACT Team and the Allen County Prosecutor’s office.
