    Police Report  

Two accidents written by the FPD last week  

Frankenmuth police officers were called to a pair of accidents in the city last week.

  On Wednesday afternoon, August 16, officers handled a two-vehicle crash at East Genesee Street near Haas Street.

  A 19-year-old Grand Rapids woman was traveling westbound on East Genesee Street and while distracted by her cell phone, ran into the back of a FedEx truck driven by a 55-year-old Saginaw man.

  Neither driver was injured and both vehicles had minor damage. No citations were issued.

  On Sunday afternoon, August 20, officers were called to the intersection of North Main and the Bavarian Mall entrance.

  A 37-year-old Otisville man was traveling northbound on North Main Street.  When he was approaching the traffic signal at the mall entrance, his vehicle’s interlock device was signaling him to blow into machine. An interlock device is installed on vehicles whose drivers have had a drunk driving offense and they must perform the test at random times.

  When he reached for the device, he rear-ended a vehicle driven by a 68-year-old Vassar female who was stopped for the red light.

  The Vassar motorist was transported to Covenant HealthCare for her injuries. Reinert & Bender Auto Repair and Towing removed her car from the scene.

  The Otisville man was cited for failure to stop for a traffic control device.
