FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — A motorcyclist killed in a crash on the northwest side of Allen County Tuesday afternoon has been identified.
Darrell Wade Carter, 51, of Fort Wayne died from Blunt Force Injury due to Motor Vehicle Crash that happened around 4 p.m. Tuesday along U.S. 33 near Hildebrand Road.
Police and medics were called to U.S. 33, south of the intersection with Carroll Road, on a report of a crash. Dispatchers initially told WANE 15 that a person was listed in extremely critical condition, but said later the person had died.
An Allen County Sheriff’s Department officer said it appeared the motorcycle veered off U.S. 33 for an unknown reason and that speed or alcohol did not appear to be a factor.
No other vehicles were involved.
U.S. 33 was closed in all directions for nearly four hours.
