Eight persons in two-car crash at King and M-83 intersection
A two-vehicle accident north of Frankenmuth last week hospitalized just one of eight persons involved in the incident.
The crash took place at 8:17pm on Tuesday, March 29, at the intersection of M-83 and King Roads.
Frankenmuth Police Chief Don Mawer said a 64-year-old Blumfield Township female was northbound on M-83 when she attempted to pass another northbound vehicle driven by a 37-year-old female from Bellevue, Kentucky. Mawer said the Bellevue driver told officers she had her turn signal on to head west on King Road.
The crash impact took place right in the intersection and forced the Kentucky female’ vehicle into a ditch in the northwest side of King Road, taking down the King Road sign.
While the Blumfield Township woman was solo, the Kentucky female had six children in her 2009 Honda Odyssey, ranging in age from 3-10. None of them were injured, including the driver, as they were properly restrained.
The Blumfield Township woman was transported by MMR Ambulance Service to Covenant HealthCare in Saginaw for her injuries. She was also issued a citation for improper passing. The weather was clear and dry and Reinert & Bender Auto Repair and Towing removed both vehicles from the scene.
