FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Authorities have identified a man who police say jumped out of a moving car in Fort Wayne while quarreling with the driver and was struck and killed by another vehicle.
The Journal Gazette and WPTA-TV report the Allen County coroner on Sunday identified the man as 25-year-old Richard John May of Bluffton. Bluffton is about 25 miles south of Fort Wayne.
