A motorcyclist died from injuries received in a crash on the east side of the city early Sunday morning, Fort Wayne police said.
The crash is being treated as a hit-skip, but investigators are uncertain to what extent the other vehicle was involved, police said
Police responded to a report of a motorcycle crash about 2:30 a.m. at Clay and East Wayne streets. They found an adult male motorcyclist who was unconscious and unresponsive.
The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.
The initial investigation found a resident in the area heard a crash. When he looked out, he saw the downed motorcycle and called 911. There were no other witnesses or persons on the scene.
Investigators believe the motorcyclist was eastbound on East Wayne Street and are treating the crash as a hit-skip crash. Police said evidence was found indicating a large-frame Ford, possibly a truck or sport utility vehicle, was involved in the crash, but it is unclear to what extent.
The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet, police said.
The intersection remained closed to traffic while the Fatal Alcohol Crash Team investigated the crash.
City police and the Allen County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office continue their investigation.
