Parking meter attendant hurt as SUV broadsided

A parking meter attendant was injured in a crash Tuesday at a downtown intersection, Fort Wayne police said.

The driver of a Jeep Liberty was headed south on Clay Street when she ran a stop sign at East Lewis Street, said officer Raquel Foster, a police spokeswoman.

The Jeep T-boned the parking meter attendant’s city vehicle, a Ford Escape, that was westbound on Lewis. The impact caused the Escape to roll and eventually come to rest upright, Foster said.

Police were sent to the crash scene about 3:45 p.m. With injuries to her head and face, the parking meter attendant was taken to a hospital in fair condition.

The Jeep driver was not hurt, Foster said.

The drivers’ names were not released. No one has been cited in the crash.
