Reward offered for info in armed robbery


According to the report, the accident happened shortly after 10 a.m. Dec. 13 and started when an eastbound Chevrolet pickup driven by Mark Archer, 52, of Leesburg, veered off Old Ind. 15 for an unknown reason, continued east across a set of railroad tracks and struck an ornamental Amish buggy before colliding with the old mill. Police said Archer told them he blacked out prior to leaving the roadway and crashing into the building.

Archer sustained very minor injuries as a result of the crash. However, he was transported to Parkview Hospital Fort Wayne at his request for further examination. Upon examination at the hospital, police said it was determined Archer had experienced a heart attack and he immediately underwent emergency surgery, which was unsuccessful.

Following an investigation into the crash, it was determined that Archer had suffered the heart attack prior to the crash, which caused him to lose consciousness.

The Allen County Coroner’s Office conducted a death investigation after the emergency surgery at Parkview Hospital. The office reportedly determined the cause of death as complications stemming from the heart attack and not as a result of the crash.
