LAPEER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – Authorities say a woman has died and several others have been injured after a modified float carrying people to a parade collided with a car about 60 miles northwest of Detroit.

WJRT-TV and The Flint Journal report an older woman driving the car died at the scene Saturday morning after she turned in front of the float on a road in Lapeer County’s Lapeer Township. Her identity hasn’t been released.

Sheriff’s Detective Sgt. Jason Parks tells the newspaper that nine people on the float were hurt – two seriously – but other details about their conditions weren’t available.

The Associated Press left a message for Parks.

The truck float, which resembles a steam locomotive but is legal for the road, was heading to the Metamora Days Parade.
