    Police Report  

     Accident at Horseshoe pits

    A 54-year-old Columbia Township man landed in the community’s horseshoe pits following a single-car crash last week.
  The accident took place around 10:15am on Friday, June 16, in the 600 block of East Tuscola Road. The initial Saginaw County Central Dispatch call reported it was a car/bicycle incident, however, a bicyclist stopped to assist the driver, Frankenmuth Police Department Chief Don Mawer said.
  The initial investigation indicates a Lincoln Continental was westbound on East Tuscola Road, passing the Memorial Park entrance, when the vehicle left the roadway on the northside, striking about a half-dozen short wooden poles, before coming to a rest by the horseshoe pits located just west of the Bark Park.
  The driver was injured and transported by MMR Ambulance Service to a Saginaw-area hospital with minor injuries. Excessive speed and alcohol are believed to be factors in the accident. The case remains under investigation.
