A man was airlifted and a woman hurt after a motorcycle crash in Tuscola County. 

It happened on Sunday, Sept. 3 at about 6:26 p.m. on Sohn Road near Frankenmuth Road.

The passenger of the motorcycle, a 39-year-old Clio woman, was pinned under the bike. She was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital by ambulance. Police said her injuries were not extensive.
