Details:

The Allen County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a one-vehicle crash that occurred in the 6000 block of Milan Center Road.  The preliminary investigation indicates that at approximately 12:38 p.m. on 1-04-08, a 1990 white Nissan 300Z, driven by a male Hispanic was northbound on Milan Center Road when he left the right side of the roadway, drove into some small trees and came to rest in the front yard of a house. The victim was wearing his seat belt and was pronounced dead at the scene. The crash is still under investigation by the Allen County Sheriff’s Department and the F.A.C.T. Team. Toxicology results are pending.  Speed and ice/snow may have been a contributing factor.  There was one passenger in the vehicle that was transported to a local hospital in serious condition.  The identity of both the driver and passenger has yet to be determined. Both are male Hispanics who appear to be in their early twenties.
