Critical Injury Traffic Accident
Time: 09:29 PM
Location: 3300 Oxford St. and Lindbergh Blvd
Victim: Adult Male/ Critical Condition
On May 11, 2016, at 9:29 PM, officers with the Fort Wayne Police Department responded to the intersection of Oxford St. and Lindbergh Blvd on a report of a traffic accident involving injuries. Officers arrived and found an adult male, who was operating a moped, to be in critical condition. Medics took the male to a local hospital where he remains in critical condition.
At this time it appears the moped was traveling eastbound on Oxford St., and a passenger car was traveling westbound. The passenger car turned southbound onto Lindbergh Blvd. in front of the moped, causing the collision.
The adult male was the only person on the moped, and the driver of the passenger car was not injured. There were no other vehicles involved. Neither speed nor alcohol are believed to be involved, and it does not appear that the moped rider was wearing a helmet.
Crash investigators are currently collecting evidence and processing the scene. Oxford St. remains closed during the investigation. This incident remains under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department FACT team.
