Post Automobile Accident / Crash on Private Property 
My mother told me that she was involved in a two vehicle crash at Lutheran Hospital today and that dispatch told her that no one could respond to the crash because it was on private property?

In the ten years reporting for newspapers that's a new one on me, I just wanted to see if this is your policy or not?

Thanks,

Keith Carson

This is accurate, the City of Fort Wayne Police Department does not typically respond to automobile accidents that occur on private property. The few exceptions that I am aware of are when there is a serious or fatal injury, if there is significant property damage, or if one party flees the scene (hit-skip investigation).
