The next crash happened at the intersection of East and Houlihan roads in Saginaw County's Spaulding Township. The crash was paged out around 1:30 p.m. Friday. A car pulling out of an area convenience store struck a motorcyclist heading northbound on East Road.

The cyclist swerved to avoid the crash but ended up hitting a corner of the vehicle.

The motorcyclist was not wearing a safety helmet and sustained injuries to his ankle and the back of his head. The injuries were not life-threatening.
