Driver 1: Male Adult of Fort Wayne
At 08:39 Am Officers of The Fort Wayne Police Department were dispatched to the 6200 block of Hessen Cassel Road on a pedestrian struck accident. Once on scene Officers located a man in the grass on the west side of the road. The man was unresponsive. Medics arrived and declared the man deceased at the scene.
The F.A.C.T team was paged in and took over the investigation. At this time we have been able to determine that the pedestrian was walking on the west side of Hessen Cassel Road in an undetermined direction. A grey Chevy pick up was traveling north on Hessen Cassel Road and as it entered the 6200 block the driver apparently fell asleep. The pickup then left the road way striking the pedestrian.
There have been no arrest at this time and alcohol is not believed to be a factor.
This case remains under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department, The Allen County Coroners Office and The Allen County Prosecutors Office.
