Local police handle car-bicyclist accident
The Frankenmuth Police responded to a car and bicyclist accident last week.
The incident took place shortly before 5pm on Wednesday, August 17, at the intersection of West Genesee and Franklin Streets.
A 37-year-old Bay City woman was traveling southbound on Franklin Street and was looking to turn westbound on West Genesee Street. Another southbound vehicle was stopped in the left-hand turn lane. As the driver got out into the intersection to see around the other car, she struck an eastbound bicyclist, a 17-year-year-old Frankenmuth male.
The bicyclist suffered abrasions and bruises and was taken to Covenant HealthCare in Saginaw by MMR Ambulance Service.
The Bay City driver was ticketed for failure to yield to a pedestrian.
In other FPD news, officers made a warrant arrest Saturday morning, August 30, in the 300 block of West Genesee Street. Arrested was a 24-year-old Frankenmuth male.
The warrant for stalking was issued two weeks ago by the Saginaw County Prosecutor’s Office.
