Fort Wayne, Ind. (WANE) — One person suffered life-threatening injuries early Sunday morning after being struck by a vehicle.

Fort Wayne Police said they were called to the intersection of Hanna Street and McKee Street just before 2 a.m. in response to a crash. Initial reports indicated the crash involved a passenger car and a pedestrian.

Officers arrived to Hanna and McKee Streets to find a man lying in the middle of Hanna Street.

The victim was taken to a hospital, where his injuries were determined to be life-threatening.
