Carrollton Township — An SUV carrying Michigan congressman John Moolenaar and a university president has crashed with a pickup truck in Saginaw County.

They received medical attention Wednesday but appeared to be unhurt. The Saginaw News says the Republican Congressman from Midland was riding in a Ford Edge driven by Don Bachand, president of Saginaw Valley State University.

The crash occurred around noon in Carrollton Township. Moolenaar and Bachand were traveling to a lunch meeting.

Moolenaar’s chief of staff, Ryan Tarrant, says he’s thankful his boss was wearing a seat belt.
