Battle Creek Police were called to the scene of a fatal crash, late Tuesday morning.
Battle Creek officers were called to a traffic accident at Custer Drive and West Michigan Avenue, around 11:50 AM. Investigators say a woman was driving north on Custer when she appeared to lose control of her vehicle. After traveling into the opposite lane, her vehicle was T-boned by a pick-up truck heading south on Custer.
A mid-60s man, driving the truck, received minor injuries but the 40-year-old, Battle Creek woman died at the scene.
