Henry Najdeski Car Accident – The officer of the Fort Wayne Police Department (FWPD) who was driving the vehicle that struck a pedestrian as they were walking in downtown Fort Wayne on Wednesday evening has been identified in an accident report that was independently obtained by 21Investigates. The collision took place on Wednesday, April 19, at approximately 7:30 p.m. near the junction of E Main Street and S Calhoun Street.
According to the crash report, Fort Worth Police Department Sergeant Joshua Hartup, 46, was operating a GMC Sierra that had been assigned to him by the department when he collided with Henry Najdeski, 52. A witness told responding officers that he was heading westbound on E Main when he observed Hartup waiting on S Calhoun to turn left. At the time, the witness was waiting at the signal.
According to him, he observed a guy cross the street using the crosswalk, and then he saw the pick-up truck that Hartup was driving hit the victim as it turned onto E. Main. According to the investigation, Najdeski had suffered a head injury and was unconscious when the officers arrived. He was reported to be in critical condition at the most recent check.
According to the documents, Hartup did not issue a statement at the relevant time. In the report, the phrase “failure to yield right of way” may be found listed under the “factors” section.
However, the records continue by saying, “Without a statement from Driver 1 or the Non-Motorist, investigators are looking for video to determine where and when the pedestrian crossed the roadway.” The investigation into the crash can’t be finished until it’s established when and where the pedestrian crossed the road.
