FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Fort Wayne Police are investigating a crash that left one driver dead. Police said a driver ran a red light, hitting another driver on West Coliseum Boulevard Tuesday night.
Police and medics were called to the intersection of West Coliseum Boulevard and Sherman Boulevard around 6 p.m. on reports of a crash with an injury/pin, according to the police activity log.
Once they arrived, they found two vehicles damaged with one person pinned inside one of them. Crews were able to pull the person out of the vehicle and took them to an area hospital. Shortly after arriving, the individual died.
He was identified Thursday as 29-year-old Ted Allan Henderson of Goshen. An autopsy found Henderson died of multiple blunt force injuries due to a motor vehicle crash and his death was ruled accidental.
