A fatal car crash leaves one person dead and another injured Saturday morning

ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (WPTA21) - Early Saturday morning, one person was found dead at a car crash scene at the intersection of Maysville Road and Stellhorn Road.

At approximately 12:29 a.m., Allen County Police responded to a car crash at the intersection of Maysville Road and Stellhorn Road. 

Officers arrived to a van that had struck a tree. 

Investigators say the van was driving northbound on Maysville Road when it left the roadway and struck a tree. 

According to investigators, alcohol and excessive speed appeared to be a factor in the crash. 

Out of the two people that were in the van, the female driver was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries, but the male passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Maysville Road is now back open to all traffic between Stellhorn Road and Brickshire Parkway where the roads were blocked off for investigation. 

This accident is still under investigation.
