At 02:53 this morning Officer’s were dispatched to the intersection of Eggeman Rd. and Covington Rd. in response to a 911 call from Onstar. Onstar was reporting an airbag deployment and roll over notice at this intersection. Once on scene Officers located a grey 2011 GMC suv about 100 yards to the North of this intersection. The vehicle was off the road in a small wooded area. Officers made way to the vehicle and found an unresponsive male driver. Medics transported the man to a local Hospital in critical condition, where he remains at this time. The F.A.C.T. Team was paged in and took over the investigation. They have determined that the grey GMC was traveling North on Eggeman Rd approaching Covington Rd. The driver failed to stop for the stop sign and continued through the “T” intersection. The Vehicle then left the roadway to the North and rolled though a small wooded area. The driver was not wearing a seat belt. Speed and alcohol were both a factor in this crash.

This case is still under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department, The Allen County Prosecutors Office and The Allen County Coroners Office.
