FFD assists with accident
Frankenmuth Police Officers responded to a pair of accidents within the city limits last week.
Shortly after 1pm Friday, March 29, officers were called to a two-vehicle crash on North Main Street near Koester Drive.
A 60-year-old Bridgeport female was pulling out of the Huntington Bank driveway and drove in front of a 29-year-old Caro female, striking her van. The van had three other passengers, all age 59 and from Caro.
The driver complained of back pain and one of the 59-year-old Caro women complained of neck pain. Each sought their own treatment.
The 60-year-old Bridgeport driver was ticketed for failure to yield the right of way.
Also, on March 29 around 11:30pm, FPD officers on routine patrol observed a vehicle leaving the Frankenmuth Chamber of Commerce parking lot, making a wide turn on to Main Street, crossing a lane and striking a curb. Officers stopped the vehicle on South Main Street near Tuscola Street.
Further investigation led to the arrest of a 56-year-old Frankenmuth male for allegedly operating while impaired. His passenger was a 53-year-old Frankenmuth female.
The driver was arrested and lodged in the Saginaw County Jail for operating while impaired. The vehicle was left legally parked and the female was transported home. Paperwork will be submitted to the Saginaw County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
Shortly after 6pm Sunday, March 31, local police were summoned to a crash at the corner of South Main and Flint streets.
A 59-year-old Birch Run male was southbound on Main Street when he rear-ended another southbound vehicle driven by a 36-year-old Livonia male.
Further investigation led to the arrest of the 59-year-old driver for allegedly operating while impaired and failure to stop in a cleared and assured distance. He failed field sobriety tests and was lodged in the Saginaw County Jail. His vehicle was impounded and the Livonia driver was able to drive his car from the scene.
