A couple driving a Chevrolet Equinox was northbound on I-69 and stopped to assist the occupants of the Nissan, with a man exiting the Equinox to direct traffic.
According to the release, the man was then struck by a minivan. He was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.
None of the occupants of the Nissan were injured.
At the time, the road was slick from sleet. Investigators determined that alcohol was not a factor.
The incident remains under investigation by members of the Fort Wayne Police Department’s FACT team.
