    Police Report

  The Frankenmuth Police handled a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of North Main and Schleier streets last week.

  The accident took place around 5pm Thursday, February 16. A 19-year-old Mount Morris male was pulling out of the Quality Auto Parts driveway, attempting to turn left (south) when he struck a northbound vehicle driven by a 29-year-old Frankenmuth female.
  The male driver was not injured, however, the female complained for neck, back and hip pain. She refused transportation to a Saginaw-area hospital by MMR Ambulance Service. Both vehicles were disabled and towed from the scene by Reinert & Bender Auto Repair and Towing.
  The Mount Morris man received a citation for failure to yield the right-of-way.
  Early Sunday morning, February 19, officers on routine patrol were on Dixie Highway near Townline Road when they observed a vehicle passing another car in the slow lane, heading northbound on Dixie. 
  The vehicle was swerving between lanes and the FPD stopped the motorist on Dixie, near Curtis Road.
  During the investigation, officers smelled what they believed to be intoxicants. Further investigation led to the arrest of a 34-year-old Flint man for allegedly operating while impaired. A blood alcohol test was made at a Saginaw-area hospital. Officers will seek a warrant for his arrest pending laboratory analysis.
