Man critical after motorcycle crash

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Main Street was closed for two-and-a-half hours Friday morning in the city’s West Central Neighborhood after a motorcycle crash critically injured a man.

Just before 4 a.m., emergency responders were called to the intersection of Main Street and Watkins Street after several 911 calls reported a crash involving a three-wheeled motorcycle and man lying in the road.

When officers arrived they found a man near a motorcycle unconscious, but breathing. Paramedics took the man to a hospital in critical condition.

Police said the man was not wearing a helmet.

Investigators determined the motorcycle was traveling westbound and crossed the center line. The motorcycle struck a parked van, flipped, and threw the driver from the cycle.

It’s unclear if drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.

The crash remains under investigation. provides commenting on many stories to allow for constructive discussion.
