ST. CHARLES, Mich. (WXYZ) - A motorcyclist and a horse are both recovering after being injured in an early morning accident near St. Charles Township in Saginaw County.
The accident happened shortly before 6:19 a.m. on M-52 near Ring Road.
The Sheriff's Department says the motorcyclist was driving a 2008 Harley Davidson north on M-52 when he struck the horse that was standing in the road.
The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet. He was taken to St. Mary's hospital in Saginaw with non-life threatening injuries. He is still being treated.
The horse also suffered minor injuries. It had run less than a mile from the scene of the accident when officers were able to locate it inside the village limits of St. Charles.
A local veterinarian was brought out to assess the horse, while members of the Sheriff's Department went door to door searching for it's owner.
The owner still has not been identified, so the horse was taken to a horse farm in Merrill by a member of the Saginaw County Sheriff's Department's all volunteer posse unit.
The horse is described as a full grown mare with a brown mane.
If you have any information about the owner of the horse, contact the Saginaw County Sheriff's Department.
