FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - An early morning semi crash on I-469 leaves one person dead, officers tell 21Alive.

The crash happened on eastbound I-469, between the Maplecrest and Maysville Road exits. Emergency dispatchers confirm that calls came in to report the crash shortly after 7 a.m. Thursday morning.

Officers on the crash scene confirm with 21Alive that a FedEx semi-truck was involved, and the driver of a separate car was pronounced dead at the scene. It is unclear if the car was broken down or had a flat that may have led to it being in a hazardous position, police say.

This is a developing story.
