Crashes claim 3 lives

Traffic accidents on Huntington County roads have claimed the lives of three people in the span of one week. On July 19, a vehicle driven by Frank Anzinger, 84, Huntington, stopped at a stop sign on Country Road 400 N. He proceeded into the intersection with CR 300W, and his vehicle  was hit by another vehicle. Anzinger had to be extricated from his vehicle and was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital where he passed away on Sunday, July 23. On Saturday night, July 22, Steven Miller, 50, Summitville, was riding his Harley-Davidson on North Etna Road. For an unknown reason, he missed a curve in the road and was thrown into a median. Miller was airlifted to Fort Wayne, where he later passed away. The third fatal accident took place on Sunday evening, July 23. Dominick Gill, 26, North Manchester was riding a motorcycle on State Road 16 when he tried to pass a vehicle in front of him. An oncoming vehicle tried to avoid hitting Gill, but was unable to. The passenger’s side of the oncoming vehicle struck Gill, sending him off the road. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Speed and improper passing are believed to be factors in the crash.
