FLORENCE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - A woman was killed and an off-duty police officer was critically injured when the car they were in struck a utility pole.

Authorities say the single-car crash occurred early Friday in the area of West Front Street and Woodlawn Avenue in Florence Township. They say speed is believed to have been a factor in the accident, but the cause of the crash remained under investigation on Saturday.

Ariana Williams, a 27-year-old Florence Township resident who was a passenger in the car, was killed. The driver, 25-year-old Justin Rodriguez, was ejected from the vehicle and remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Rodriguez is a Burlington Township police officer who was driving his own car.
