Two die in auto accident

FORT WAYNE—At approximately 3:30 a.m., May 27, the Fort Wayne Police Department responded to the intersection of Butler Road and Butler Court in reference to a personal injury accident. As officers and first responders arrived on the scene, they located a vehicle off the roadway fully engulfed in flames. Fire personnel quickly extinguished the fire. Investigators located one victim lying, later identified as 40 year old Akif Avdibasic, on the ground outside of the vehicle and located another victim, 31 year old Elvis Ibisevic, inside the vehicle. Both victims Avdibasic and Ibisevic were declared deceased at the scene.

Investigators believe that the vehicle was traveling in a northeast direction as the vehicle left the roadway and struck a tree. It is believed that speed possibly might have been a factor in the crash. It is unclear at this time if alcohol was a factor in the crash. The names of the victims will be released by the Allen County Coroner’s Office.

This incident remains under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department F.A.C.T Team, Allen County Prosecutors Office and the Allen County Coroner’s Office.
