The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department responded to an accident at 10:39 p.m. Sunday in the 1900 block of DeKalb County 68, where a 29-year-old man died, according to a police report.
Investigators believe speed was a factor in the single-car crash that killed Heath B. Reed, 29, of Fort Wayne.
Officers arrived at the scene and found the 2004 Chrysler 300 engulfed in flames and Reed ejected from the vehicle. CPR was performed, but Reed was pronounced dead at the scene. The LaOtto Fire Department put out the fire.
