CANTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A woman was killed and a man was injured Monday in a two-car collision at Ford and Canton Center roads in Canton Township, police said.

The crash happened just before 8 a.m. Monday (Sept. 13), according to authorities.

Police said a silver BMW was heading west on Ford Road when it collided with a red Toyota in the intersection. The impact caused the BMW to strike a traffic signal pole, officials said.

The driver of the BMW, a 38-year-old Canton Township woman , was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.

Officials said the 46-year-old Canton Township man driving the Toyota was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Nobody else was inside either car, authorities said.
