The suspect vehicle is a 1997-1998 Teal and Tan Ford Expedition, police said. The suspect vehicle will have damage on the front passenger side. It is missing the front headlight lens and the turn signal is completely broken, according to their description.

Police were called at 2:28 a.m. April 14 to the intersection of Clay and East Wayne streets to a wreck involving a motorcycle. Officers found the motorcycle rider unconscious and unresponsive. Rescue workers pronounced him dead at the scene.

Jason S. Gnagey, 27, of Fort Wayne died of blunt-force trauma, according to the coroner's office.

Gnagey was wearing a helmet, according to the news release.

The coroner's office listed Gnagey's death as the 11th traffic fatality this year in Allen County.
