FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Fort Wayne Police still haven’t seen or heard from a driver involved in a crash that left a 14-year-old boy with life-threatening injuries Sunday afternoon.
According to the Fort Wayne Police Department, the crash happened just after 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of St. Joe Center Road and Arlington Parkway North on the city’s northeast side.
The boy on a “motocross style” bike collided with a Dodge Charger as he made a turn from Arlington Parkway onto St. Joe Center Road, police said. The boy was then transported to a hospital to be treated for critical injuries.
According to an FWPD public information officer, the boy remained in critical condition as of Tuesday afternoon.
The sedan hit the back of the bike, but officials say it isn’t clear who had the right-of-way.
The driver of the Charger got out of his car and left the scene, and officers are still attempting to locate him. Police say they’ve attempted to make contact with the driver at his home and by calling his cell phone.
He hung up on officers when they called him, police told WANE 15.
Police have not released a description of the man who was allegedly involved in the crash.
The FWPD Fatal Accident Crash Team (FACT) and Air Support Unit were called for the investigation.
Police said Tuesday that their investigation remains ongoing.
