The Fort Wayne man motorcyclist critically injured in a crash on Coldwater Road about 3 a.m. today has died at a local hospital, the Allen County coroner's office said.

Justin Seyfert's accidental death from blunt force trauma is the 10th traffic fatality in Fort Wayne and the county in 2014, the coroner's office said in a statement.

Seyfert was found in the 8500 block of Coldwater and was taken to a local hospital, police have said.
