City woman dies in crash of ATV
Passenger hurt when it rolls on embankment
An all-terrain vehicle crash Thursday night in Whitley County left a woman dead and a man badly hurt, according to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.
Jodie Lynn Deck, 38, and Caleb Ball, 37, both of Fort Wayne, were heading north on Johnson Road, just south of Chapine Road, about 9:30 p.m., conservation officer Darren Reed said.
No one witnessed the crash, but investigators believe the ATV the two were riding went off the road near a curve and kept going north for a short distance along a small embankment, just off the road. The vehicle then rolled, and Deck, the driver, and Ball, her passenger, were thrown to the ground. They were not wearing helmets, Reed said.
Deck died at the scene. Ball was flown to Parkview Regional Medical Center in critical condition. By Friday night, he had been upgraded to fair condition, hospital staff said.
Reed said Deck and Ball lived together but were not married and had no children in common.
According to an obituary, Deck was born in Fort Wayne. A Wayne High School graduate, she worked at Columbia City Mill Service. She is survived by two sons, her mother and two brothers.
Smith and Sons Funeral Home in Columbia City is handling her services, which have not yet been scheduled.
