The Allen County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a one-vehicle crash that occurred on U.S. 30 east of Morgan Road.  At approximately 12:08 a.m. on Tuesday, May 11, 2010, dispatch received a call in reference to a traffic crash.  The caller advised that a single vehicle (Red 1995 Chevrolet Trailblazer) was west bound on U.S. 30 just east of Morgan Road when the vehicle started to go off the right side of the roadway.  The vehicle over compensated and went off the left side of the roadway crossing the east bound lanes of traffic.  The vehicle rolled several times and caught on fire.  The witness who was following the vehicle stopped to assist the driver.  The driver sustained burns to his body and was flown by the Samaritan Helicopter to St. Joe Hospital in critical condition.  The crash is still under investigation by the Allen County Sheriff’s Department and the F.A.C.T.
