Date:          December 2, 2018

Time:     8:54pm

Location of Incident:             Lima Valley Dr. and Northbury Dr.

Victim:                                     Adult Male / Critical Condition

On Sunday, December 2, 2018, at 8:54pm, the Fort Wayne Police Department responded to a report of an injury accident at the intersection of Lima Valley Dr. and Northbury Dr. Officers arrived and found a single vehicle accident with an adult male driver. The adult male was found to be in serious condition on the scene, and was taken to a local hospital where he was downgraded to critical condition.

Initial information indicates the adult male driver was driving northbound on Lima Rd before turning westbound onto Lima Valley Dr. As the male continued driving down Lima Valley Dr, he left the north side of the roadway for an unknown reason, struck a tree, and came to a rest. Investigators said speed and alcohol appear to be possible factors in this crash, as witnesses reported the vehicle was driving recklessly on both roads.

Investigators are currently processing the scene, searching for collecting evidence that might help determine why the driver left the roadway. There were no other vehicles or persons involved in this crash.

Anyone who may have witnessed this crash is asked to contact police.

This incident remains under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department and the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office.
