FRENCHTOWN TWP. (WWJ) – Authorities say an Ann Arbor man who was critically injured in a crash with a semi-truck apparently drove through a stop sign just before the collision.

The crash remains under investigation. Anyone who may have witnessed the crash is asked to contact police at 734-240-7711.
