Skateboarder remains in critical condition after hit by car Tuesday

Fort Wayne, Ind. A skateboarder who was hit by a van in Warsaw earlier this week remains in critical condition.

The crash happened Tuesday morning at the intersection of Center and Detroit Streets.

Police say the eastbound van struck Austin Valentine, 15, who was crossing the road at the time.

The vehicle reportedly had the left turn arrow and hit the teen while turning onto Detroit Street.

Valentine went airborne and was flown to a Fort Wayne hospital in critical condition with massive head injuries, where he's still being treated Friday, three days later.

The incident remains under investigation.
