FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - UPDATE: The woman who was taken to the hospital after a multi-vehicle crash on Stellhorn Road and Reed Road has died. She died at the hospital around 8:20 a.m. 

ORIGINAL STORY: A woman was taken to the hospital in critical condition after a crash Wednesday morning on Stellhorn and Reed Road. 

Police and medics were called just after 7:00 a.m. Wednesday on report of a multi-vehicle crash. 

When they got there, they found four cars involved in the crash. The driver of one of those cars was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries. She was later downgraded to critical condition. 

Witnesses told investigators the woman was trying to turn left onto Reed Road when she turned into the path of a SUV.
