FRANKENMUTH, MI (WNEM) -

Authorities say alcohol may have been a factor in a crash over the weekend in front of Bronner's Christmas Wonderland. 

It happened Sunday, Dec. 18 about 5:14 p.m. at the intersection of Main and Weiss in Frankenmuth. 

When first responders arrived, they found two vehicles and three patients involved in the crash.

Investigators said the first vehicle, a Jeep driven by a 53-year-old Harrisville man, was heading northbound on M-83 when it left the road on the eastside, about 100 yards south of the Weiss Street intersection.

The Jeep traveled north and hit another vehicle stopped at a stop sign waiting to turn south on M-83.

The second vehicle was occupied by a 62-year-old man and a 60-year-old woman, both from Whitmore Lake.

The driver of the second vehicle told police he saw the Jeep leave the road but could not move to avoid the crash because of the cross traffic on M-83 and vehicles behind him.

The Harrisville man was taken to a Saginaw area hospital for treatment.

Police said both vehicles were totaled in the crash.

Seat belts were used and alcohol is being considered as a factor in the incident, officials said.
