Moped rider critically hurt after losing control

A man suffered critical injuries Thursday afternoon when he crashed his moped in southeast Fort Wayne.

The 22-year-old man, whose name was not released, was headed north in the 4900 block of Avondale Drive when he lost control of the moped and laid it down on the street, said Officer Michael Joyner, a Fort Wayne Police Department spokesman.
