FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Sunday around 12 a.m., the Fort Wayne Police Department was dispatched in reference to a crash involving a pickup truck and a motorcycle on N Clinton Street near Colony Drive.
According to police, the motorcycle was traveling north on N Clinton and the pickup truck was traveling east on Colony Drive when the crash occurred.
Medics arrived on the scene and transported the motorcycle rider to an area hospital with multiple injuries. The rider’s injuries were determined to be life-threatening after arriving at the hospital.
