FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A man has life threatening injuries after being ejected from a mini-van on an exit ramp Friday night.
Just after 10:30 p.m. the Fort Wayne Police Department responded to exit 309A (Goshen Rd.) off of northbound I-69 and US-30 with reports of a crash. Witnesses in the area said a mini van hit the median wall. When officers got to the scene they found the van in a ditch off of the road. Paramedics transported the man to a hospital in serious condition. Once arriving at the hospital, doctors downgraded the man’s condition to life-threatening.
Investigators say the driver of the van was trying to merge onto US-30 but failed to stop and hit the median wall that separates eastbound and westbound US-30. The driver was thrown from the van and hit the median wall. Police on scene say speed was a factor in the crash.
This incident remains under investigation by the City of Fort Wayne Police Department and the Allen County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
