A 23-year-old White Lake Township woman was killed in a two-vehicle accident in the early morning hours of Thursday, Aug. 2 in Waterford Township.
According to Waterford Township police, the woman, identified earlier this week as Brittany Rose Morgan, was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Aveo eastbound on Highland Road (M-59) 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.
Morgan 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, according to police. 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.
As of press time yesterday, Tuesday, Aug. 7, there was no further information on the cause of the accident.
