A 23-year-old White Lake Township woman was killed in a two-vehicle accident early this morning in Waterford Township.
According to township police, the woman was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Aveo eastbound on Highland Road (M-59) today, Thursday, Aug. 2 around 3:05 a.m. when she rear-ended a 1999 Grumman Olson delivery truck stopped at M-59′s intersection with Elizabeth Lake Road.
The woman, who was not identified in a Waterford Township Police Department press release, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the delivery truck, a 42-year-old Royal Oak man, was not injured in the accident, according to police.
Both drivers were wearing seatbelts, and air bags were deployed in the accident, police said. Neither alcohol nor drugs appear to be a factor in the early-morning crash that closed the intersection of M-59 and Elizabeth Lake Road for several hours.
