FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Fort Wayne police are investigating a crash that killed two people.

Shortly before 1 a.m. on Friday, a witness reported a tree limb blocking Lindenwood Avenue, south of Spring Street. Responding officers determined it was the result of a crash.

Police found a vehicle that had gone through a fence on the east side of the road and into Lindenwood Cemetery. A man and a woman were inside the car. Paramedics determined they both had died.

They were identified Friday as Kelly M. Crump, 45, and Todd William Jackson, 49, both of Fort Wayne.

According to the preliminary investigation, the car was traveling south on Lindenwood when it crossed the center line and went off the road, hitting a tree and the cemetery fence. It flipped at least once before coming to a stop.

Investigators believe speed contributed to the crash.

Lindenwood Avenue is closed to all traffic between Spring Street and Illinois Road, while investigators remain on scene.
