The Journal Gazette

A man involved last week in a semi crash on Interstate 69 at the 293-mile marker in Allen County has died from his injuries, the county coroner's office said today.

Bruce D. Lynch, 45, of Anderson, crashed the semi he was driving into bridge supports at a construction site last week. Another truck driver crashed into the same supports Tuesday morning and is in serious condition.

After an autopsy, Lynch's cause of death was ruled blunt force trauma from a motor vehicle crash and his manner of death has been ruled an accident, the coroner's office said in a statement.

Lynch's death is the ninth traffic fatality in Fort Wayne and Allen County in 2017.
