Critical Injury Accident


Date/Time of Incident: May 28, 2012 / 04:01a.m.

Location of Incident:    6600 Illinois Rd

Victim:                          Adult Male, critical condition

                                    Adult Male, stable condition



At approximately 04:01a.m. on May 28th, 2012 the Fort Wayne Police Department, Fort Wayne Fire Department and Three Rivers Ambulance Authority responded to a report of a critical injury accident involving motorcycles in the 6600 block of Illinois Rd. Upon arrival, emergency personnel located two adult males, one in critical condition and the other in stable condition. Both males were transported to a local hospital.


At this time it is believed that two motorcycles were traveling westbound in the same lane when an undetermined factor caused the two motorcycles to come into contact with each other, causing one of the motorcycles to immediately crash, and the other to travel a short distance before also crashing. The driver of the motorcycle that crashed first was found to be in critical condition and the driver of the motorcycle that crashed second was found to be in stable condition.


Neither driver was wearing a helmet, and investigators believe speed and alcohol to be possible factors. Neither motorcycle had any passengers.


Westbound Illinois Rd. at Magnavox Way was closed during the investigation.


This incident remains under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department Fatal Alcohol Crash Team (F.A.C.T.).


Assisting Agencies: City of Fort Wayne Fire Department, Three Rivers Ambulance Authority.
