Three injured in crash involving stolen school bus


Three people were injured on Sunday morning when a school bus and a pickup truck crashed south of Ulen, which is located in Clay County in northwestern Minnesota, about 35 miles northwest of Detroit Lakes. None of the injured were children.

KFGO in Fargo said the two vehicles collided around 6:40 a.m., and the pickup ended on its side on the roadway, partially blocking traffic. The smaller-sized school bus went into the east ditch and ended up on BNSF railroad tracks that run parallel to Highway 32.

Valley News Live reported that the driver of the pickup was taken to a Fargo hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Clay County Deputy Sheriff Mike Trigg said that two men who had been aboard the bus left the scene but were found at a nearby farm. They, too, were taken to a Fargo hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Minnesota State Patrol Sargent Jesse Grabow said the bus is from the Circle of Life Academy on the White Earth Indian Reservation and was stolen.

The crash remains under investigation.
