FORT WAYNE – The Allen County Coroner's Office has identified the second victim in a head-on, two-car collision that left two people dead Wednesday morning in southwest Allen County.
Stephen E. Creel, 47, of Stilesville in Hendricks County, was driving a green Honda Accord north on Homestead Road when it veered across the centerline and into the southbound lane, a witness at the scene told sheriff's investigators.
That car collided with a silver Honda Accord driven by Marjorie "Marge" S. Abramowski, 72, of Fort Wayne.
The crash occurred about 6:50 a.m. on Homestead Road just north of Ernst Road, according to the Allen County Sheriff's Department.
Both Abramowski and Creel died at the scene. Their deaths are the county's 22nd and 23rd traffic fatalities in the county this year.
No passengers were in either car.
Abramowski was wearing a seat belt. Creel was not, according to the coroner's office.
The crash remains under investigation. Abramowski was a registered nurse and had her own counseling practice, according to her obituary. She was a volunteer at the Habitat ReStore.
The Mass of Christian Burial is set for 10 a.m. Saturday at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, with calling one hour prior. Calling is scheduled from 2 to 5 and 7 to 9 p.m. Friday at D.O. McComb & Sons Covington Knolls Funeral Home, 8325 Covington Road.
