FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- A man is dead after a crash Wednesday morning on east State Boulevard. 

Officers were called around 7:00 a.m. to the 5500 block of E. State. A homeowner said he saw a vehicle from his backyard that had crashed. 

The man inside the vehicle died at the scene. 

Investigators believe he was westbound when for an unknown reasons, he left the road and traveled north onto the sidewalk. He then encountered some trees and continued over an embankment, where he rolled and landed near a ditch. 

Police are still investigating, but the crash may have happened a few hours before the call came in.

The Allen County Coroner will release the name of the victim.
