The sedan was occupied by an adult male driver and a child in the rear passenger seat. Neither were injured. Police also confirmed no students from Bishop Dwenger were involved in the crash.

Both southbound lanes and one northbound lane were closed for a time as crews responded to the scene.

The male victim will be identified by the Allen County Coroner’s Office. This crash remains under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department, Coroner’s Office and the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office.
