Critical-injury crash sends car into snow pile

Fort Wayne police are investigating a critical-injury crash today in which one car was rear-ended and sent airborne into a snow pile near a sidewalk.

About 12:15 p.m., police said, they responded to a report of an accident with injuries at the intersection of St. Joe Road and Canterbury Drive on Fort Wayne's northeast side.

Police said investigators determined a green Honda Accord was headed south on St. Joe Road at a high rate of speed when it rear-ended a silver Ford Crown Victoria, sending the Ford airborne into the snow pile.

The driver of the Ford, who was not identified, was taken to a local hospital in critical condition, police said.

Witnesses told police the driver of the Honda, who was not identified, exited his car and punched the windshield of a vehicle traveling north on St. Joe Road. The driver of the northbound vehicle was not injured.

Police said the Honda driver was taken to a local hospital in stable condition.

The accident remains under investigation by city and IPFW police and the Allen County Prosecutor's Office.
