A Fort Wayne man was killed and two people were hurt in a head-on collision Saturday on U.S. 33.
Witnesses told investigators that a black Mercedes sedan was headed south on U.S. 33, north of Hildebrand Road, when it crossed the centerline for an unknown reason and hit a maroon Ford F-350 pickup truck that was northbound, the Allen County Sheriffs Department said.
The crash sent the truck into a ditch, and the Mercedes came to a rest in the middle of the road. Emergency crews were dispatched about 3 p.m.
The Mercedes driver, Randall Fulk, 29, was extricated from the vehicle and flown to Parkview Regional Medical Center in critical condition, authorities said.
The county coroners office said Fulk died from his injuries about 6:20 p.m. He was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, the office said.
The sheriffs department said the truck driver was in serious condition and that a passenger with minor injuries was in good condition. Both were taken by ambulance to a hospital. Their names were not released.
U.S. 33 was closed between Hildebrand and Giesking roads until about 8 p.m. while the crash was investigated, the sheriffs department said.
