Frankenmuth Police Officers responded to a pair of accidents on M-83 on the first day of spring.
The first mishap took place shortly after noon on Monday, March 20, on M-83 at Townline Road.
A 51-year-old Birch Run man was traveling westbound on Townline Road when he disregarded the stop sign and traveled into the intersection and was struck by a southbound vehicle driven by a 37-year-old Warren man. In his car was a 41-year-old Warren woman, a 2-year-old child and an eight-month-old infant.
The Birch Run man was not injured, however, three persons in the car driven by the Warren man were transported to a Saginaw-area hospital by MMR Ambulance Service with non-life-threatening injuries. Air bags went off in both cars and all five persons in the accident were properly restrained.
A witness to the accident said the man disregarded the stop sign and he was ticketed for the infraction.
Both vehicles were towed from the scene by Reinert & Bender Auto Repair and Towing.
Three hours later, shortly after 3pm, officers responded to a two-vehicle accident on North Main Street at the Bavarian Mall entrance.
A 49-year-old Frankenmuth woman was exiting the mall and was struck on the driver’s side door by a northbound vehicle driven by a 46-year-old Reese woman. The traffic light was red for north and southbound traffic.
The Reese woman was not injured, however, the Frankenmuth woman had minor injuries. MMR Ambulance Service responded but did not transport her.
Airbags deployed and both drivers were properly restrained. The Reese driver received a ticket for failing to obey a traffic control device.
