The Frankenmuth Police Department is continuing to investigate a one-vehicle accident that took place in the northwest corner of Frankenmuth Township.
The crash took at the intersection of King and Reimer roads and was called in to the FPD by Saginaw County Central Dispatch shortly before 1am Thursday, April 30.
Central Dispatch reported that Covenant HealthCare officials contacted them, stating two male subjects were brought to the hospital in a private vehicle and one of them was badly injured.
The local police responded first to the scene, to make sure no one else was injured. They found a 2009 Chevrolet Traverse nose down into the ditch, on the west side of Reimer Road. The driver, a 37-year-old Saginaw man, was westbound on King and stated he did not know the area and crashed at the jog in the intersection. The interior was found to have mud and quite a bit of blood inside, FPD Chief Don Mawer said.
While the driver was not hurt in the crash, his passenger, also a 37-year-old Saginaw man, had incapacitating injuries. They contacted a 37-year-old Frankenmuth man, who actually loaned the vehicle to the driver, to pick them up and take them to the Saginaw hospital
The accident remains under investigation as police are wondering why law enforcement was not called to the scene. Alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
