GENERIC: Saginaw Township Police Department

A 21-year-old Saginaw man is recovering in the hospital after he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a fire hydrant and tree in Saginaw Township.

On Tuesday at 11 p.m., the man was heading west on State Street when he lost control of his vehicle, a 2006 Saturn Ion, causing him to leave the roadway and strike a tree and a fire hydrant, according to the Saginaw Township Police Department.

Personnel with the Saginaw Township Fire Department extracted the driver and was taken to a local hospital by MMR. The extend of the victim's injuries is unknown at this time, but they do not appear to be life-threatening, the police department said.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash. The driver was issued a citation for speed too fast. No other occupants were inside the vehicle.
