Fort Wayne, Ind - On Tuesday, 04/09/2013, at approximately 7:26 PM, the City of Fort Wayne Police Department responded to the 1300 block of Leesburg Road reference a motorcycle crash with injuries.  Officers arrived on scene and discovered the crash involved a single motorcyclist.       
The motorcyclist was unconscious and unresponsive upon the officer’s arrival.  Paramedics and fire personnel arrived and indicated the victim was in critical condition.  The motorcyclist was transported to a local hospital in critical condition.
Preliminary reports indicate the motorcyclist was traveling northbound in the 1300 block of Leesburg Road.  Witnesses stated the motorcyclist failed to negotiate a curve in roadway, crossed the center line, and struck the curb on the west side of the road.  Upon striking the curb, the motorcyclist lost control and struck a light pole.  The motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.  Investigators believe speed and alcohol were both contributing factors in the crash.
